John Sweeney does it again. Ten years ago I saw a programme he made on the complicity of Dutch UN troops in the massacre at Srebenica (basically, they abandoned the people they were supposed to protect). Now he's done a pretty hard-hitting report for BBC 2 on the election campaign by former UK ambassador Craig Murray in Jack Straw's constituency.
Murray was ridiculed, smeared, leant on and finally sacked by the FCO for speaking out against the systematic use of torture in Uzbekistan. Details can be found on his site here, and there are a good number of articles on the Grauniad website, including this one by Murray himself on the reasons for the continuing US and UK support for the Uzbek government - oil and gas.
Pass it on.
