Ex-MI5 chief: US hid torture from us with lies





A former head of MI5 has claimed that US intelligence agencies deliberately concealed their mistreatment of terror suspects.

Baroness Manningham-Buller said she learnt that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, had been waterboarded only after she retired from the Security Service in 2007.

In a speech to the Mile End Group at the House of Lords, Lady Manningham-Buller said: “The Americans were very keen that people like us did not discover what they were doing.”

She said that she had wondered, in 2002 and 2003, how the US had been able to supply her service with intelligence from Mohammed.
