Anyway, Christian's article:
The court's agreement to reopening consideration of whether the documents about Binyam Mohamed should be disclosed came before the further revelation that the US government had only written the letter containing the "threat" at the request of the Foreign Office. Even if, as the prime minister's office tried to claim yesterday, the request was simply to confirm the known position of the US government, there is a very nasty smell about it. The judicial review of the failure to prosecute BAE for bribery was halted because of a similar "threat" from the Saudi government. We cannot help but wonder if such threats are now seen by governments as their alibi for avoiding the rule of law.
Obama needs to make good on his promises to make government more transparent - and do so when it matters (Mohamed et al v. Jeppesen). Deeds, not words. Otherwise they risk what seems to me to be a monumental loss of faith not just in US politics, but in US law.
