Guest conspiracy theory of the week

Why do the Government keep coming back with the unpopular proposal to bang people up without charging them for six weeks?

Is it because the Bush administration has asked them to shove it through?

'US fears Europe-based terrorism'

I have to say the biggest threat comes from overseas, and one of the places we are increasingly worried about is Europe

Michael Chertoff
Homeland Security Secretary

Not that anyone is suggesting CIA officials or any US officials might want to question terror suspects detained for questioning in the UK, before or after their being charged. As far as I know, people in the custody of the UK police and security services are certainly not passed about like parcels or given up for interview to agents of other states.

On an entirely unrelated subject, torture flights ,
secret CIA jails on British islands,
Red Cross not able to visit terror detainees
secret CIA jails in Europe
CIA videos of interrogations destroyed
'ghost prisoners'.

You can see how these wild ideas get started, can't you?
UPDATE: Members of the public commenting on the BBC site do not seem at all keen on the idea of 42 days

translate Homeland security in to German and then cross reference with the Nazi era

You'll find that the words used are the same

Just like the Dutch sent the most Jews to the concentration camps

Just my two pennorth

I was heavily into conspiraloonery in 2002 and I realised that the US want to keep an eye on everyone in the western world and have everyone tagged

Roger Thornhill discusses these little aspects as fenceposts at

In fact I would go so far as to recommend you read all the fenceposts that Roger has mentioned and the pieces of the puzzle will fall into place and you will open your eyes

Im not as conspiraloony now but having been banged up in a psychiatric hospital and been lied about and had things that I didn't say put in the notes I'm afraid that the worst is yet to come.

It can be very very frightening when you have no rights.

Now how on Earth do you expect me to make a cogent argument when you post a picture like that??

Paranoia is a national pastime in the US. Unfortunately it appears to be catching and we're getting it too. 6 weeks, wrong, wrong, wrong.

An utterly pertinent question Rachel.

Whatever the answer/excuse is, I don't agree with it!

Gordy's not doing much of a job in distinguishing himself from TB in my view as he seems to be perpetuating all the maddest policies TB instigated to make us all felons in our own country!
