Added Stories on Sunday 21st April 2013:
[1] How certain security services parties (MI5, MI6, CIA etc) are colliding to stop the release of Amir Shakeer an Innocent last British Citizen held in Guantanamo who was cleared of all charges since 2007, but his release is deemed ”harmful” to these parties since it will see Messr Shakeer appearing before the court of law (the most feared entity by these ”legitimized criminal entities”, not our words, but the words of ever serving or having served intelligence personnel), to verify if he was tortured under UK knowledge and/or participation, see these two articles;
