Ian Cobain appears in the following:

A Secret History of Torture

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Investigative journalist Ian Cobain argues that while the United Kingdom does not “participate in, solicit, encourage or condone” torture, when it’s faced with potential threats to national security, the rules change.

He draws on previously unseen official documents and the accounts of witnesses, victims and experts.
