Terrorist training in Australia!

Go figure.....


With the Middle East ceasefire less than a week old, young Jewish Australians are preparing to go to Israel so they can join the army and fight in any future conflict. These young Australians say they are ready to risk everything to support Israel, and the recent violence has only increased their enthusiasm. Australia's youth Zionist groups organise activities and Jewish education programs for teenagers in the hope they will actively support Israel. In the past four years, more than 400 Australian Jews have made the move and most of them have done compulsory military service. Reuben Bolaffi oversees Australia's young Zionist groups and he says the recent conflict has strengthened the resolve of young Australian Zionists to support the Jewish homeland. 

 But wait.........


Foreign Minister Bob Carr has warned it is illegal for Australians to join the uprising in Syria, in light of reports some have become involved in the conflict. More than 30,000 people have died in the uprising against the Assad regime since March last year. "It is illegal under Australian law to engage in fighting on either side, fund, train or recruit someone to fight, or supply of fund weapons for any side," he said. 

But when you read this story all becomes clear.... 


Australia will abstain from a controversial vote to give Palestine an upgraded United Nations status. Sources have confirmed the federal government will not vote for or against the vote expected to take place on Thursday this week. Australia's stance is likely to anger Israel, which has previously made it clear it expected the federal government to join it and the US in voting against the Palestinian resolution. 

 "likely to anger Israel" cry me a river. We all know that the Bandit State Israel, a country that is the size of some our cattle stations here in Queensland has far to much influence for this white boy. Our leaders drop to their collective knees when ever Israel demands. When will we learn.

Treason! Thousands of asylum seekers to be released into community
Treason! Detention centres have been so overwhelmed by the more than 15,000 asylum seekers who have arrived this year that the federal Labor government plans to release thousands of them into the community. They are also going to be paid welfare benefits and put in public housing. That means more homeless Australian families will be kicked to the kerb to make way for invaders, who will be paid billions in welfare. Meanwhile, in Western Australia, the government has rejected an Australian company's bid for land in the Ord River region and, instead, handed the 15,000 hectares of land to a Chinese company. Also, gutless morons abuse French woman on bus; and Labor thugs threaten witness at the Independent Commission Against Corruption inquiry into corruption within the former New South Wales Labor government.

Whats with all the adds?

No we haven't sold out. But you may have noticed all the advertising that is now showing up all over the place at WLT. Funny considering when ever we have attempted to sell anything or raise money from this blog for various reasons we have been threatened with being shut down time after time for doing so.

Yet blogger can use our blog to sell all types of crap that we would never indorse. May be its time to move on from blogger, unless anyone can come up with a solution. So for now we appologise for the inconvenience.

Anyway please enjoy this video advertising the truth in History.

Anonymous: Operation Israel

Well I'm not sure how to take this. Many times I have seen the group "Anonymous" by no real fault of their own actually do the bidding of the Neo Cons and Zionists. I mean you cant blame them? "Anonymous"  just like so many are the product of a Western Education system that enforces certain lies and corrections in history to help protect the guilty and frame the real freedom loving people of the world. But from the video below I believe that there may be some internal battles going on at the top level of this "Anonymous" phenomenon.

Looks like people such as myself and many others who share the same beliefs as we do at WLT are no longer the only ones being mislabeled as "Terrorists" for simply not following the Zionist media and its puppet master.

One things for sure many people on my side of the fence have never stood by and said nothing on this subject and many others concerning the Bandit State Israel and Zionism.  Sadly it takes Israeli threats of shutting down the internet to get them to act. I wish them luck on this one.
Just a brief history on the Bandit State to keep you up to speed.

Very Interesting...Allied War Crimes...but wait...there's more...

Walked into a door...several times...a 'revolving' door...apparently...Our brave Tommies are assisting him to medical assistance...aren't they?
The author Bill Bryson has made comments regarding what he perceives as a peculiar attitude of the British people. He said they intrigued him because, in his opinion, they had ‘fought a noble war’ and ‘did the right thing’ for Human Rights blah, blah, blah, yet they still behaved like ‘losers’ and seemed to feel they had ‘failed’ and lost something. Well Bill, this is because they HAD lost a LOT.
They had been duped into being the stooges of the Zionists of International Capital and sacrificed tens of thousands of their most virile youth. They had become shackled to decades of crippling debt via the so-called ‘Lend Lease’ program. They had lost most of their Naval fleet’s best capital ships and thereby were no longer the preeminent Sea Power. They had lost most of their Empire and the rest was soon to follow. Unlike the Americans, who had plundered the technology of the Germans in the greatest Patent Heist of all time and whose troops returned to a far more affluent nation than the one they’d left, the wretched Brits went home to almost another decade of rationing, the meat rationing for example not ending until mid-1954!
No wonder the Britain of the late Forties and Fifties was so grey and miserable compared to the American Fifties dreamtime of big, flash cars, gigantic refrigerators, colour televisions and other luxury consumer goods produced by their intact (untouched by bombing) former armaments factories. But on top of this, in a large scale case of ‘guess who’s coming to dinner’, just as they were finally digging themselves out of their post war privations and England was starting to ‘swing’ in the early Sixties, surprise, surprise, the Brits were ‘rewarded’ with the enriching and bountiful gifts of Multiculturalism just to rub their noses in it. Waves and waves of Third World filth washed in on a black and brown tide from the Caribbean and the Indian sub-continent. Oh joy! Their coloured ‘cousins’ had come to stay and ‘share’ in the fruits of their hard work. Funny that, innit? Our coloured ‘friends’ have an uncanny sense for sniffing out affluence and its inevitable generosity and welfare. Like flies at a barbecue, they are impossible to shake once they’ve got a whiff of that smell. They will follow Whites, even when they flee the wreckage of their own cities, like a caravan of camp followers so as to benefit from the White Man’s labours.
So why does your Old Uncle Victor still persist in banging on about World War Two when it is apparently so irrelevant to our cause today? Because it is NOT irrelevant at all. In fact it is absolutely VITAL to our cause. Because, like the so-called Holocaust©, the myth of Allied chivalry and our assumed status as Champions of Truth, Justice and the Forces of Good is utterly dependent on maintaining the obscene lies of our wartime propaganda because, you see, once a liar has embarked on telling whoppers he must keep ON telling bigger and bigger ones to cover the widening cracks in his façade that might become apparent to those pesky types and trouble makers who ask awkward questions.
This is why the Holocaust© Myth is now, utterly unprecedented since the days of the Inquisition, protected from scrutiny by LAW! None may question the veracity of The Word of the Chosenites upon pain of (social, political, financial) death. And any who ARE still brave or foolish enough to highlight the glaring inconsistences in the officially anointed version are immediately slammed with LEGAL action in many European Nations for ‘Defaming the memory of the dead’ or other preposterous, trumped up offences!!! Those that are not covered by such legislation because they live beyond the jurisdiction of these places are themselves defamed as ‘kooks’, ‘cranks’, ‘nutty Conspiracy Theorists’ or simply the routine ‘Anti-Semites’, ‘Haters’ or Neo-Nazis’.
But that’s all fine and good…apparently…to slander and vilify people who just want to know the TRUTH. As the Historian David Irving calls it, ‘the search for truth in History’. Is this such an evil and despicable pursuit? Admittedly there is a certain percentage of bullies, psychopaths and sadists in every Human population, regardless of Race, Class or Creed, although some Cultures are certainly more predisposed to callousness, but the sheer intensity of hatred for the enemy and the degree of the mistreatment of Civilians and Prisoners is unmatched when one seriously studies the appalling conduct of many of ‘our boys’ in the Allied Forces that conquered Germany and their subsequent reign of terror and torture which lasted well into the late Forties! With no serious advocates, except perhaps the International Red Cross and certain other Humanitarian organisations which were effectively blocked from assisting, the Germans were systematically brutalised, starved, tortured, murdered and robbed as well as being displaced in violent ethnic cleansing all over Europe.
It has been estimated, for example, by some (honest) Historians that the expulsion of Ethnic Germans from European nations where they had lived for dozens of generations was the largest movement of people in Europe ever, yet almost nobody today is even aware it happened! The reason is very plain and simple. The Germans and their handful of advocates had no equivalent to Hollywood and Television. They did not write the history books or make the propaganda ‘documentaries’. And even if they did or had done so they had been so effectively stamped with the mark of the universal pariah that none would wish to even hear their accounts, let alone believe them or feel pity for them. We see today that whenever the subject is broached in discussions or on forums that the response is almost always a variation on the themes that ‘Well, they deserved it, didn’t they?’ or ‘Well, look at what they did to the poor, innocent Jews!’ or the simplistic (and entirely inaccurate) Basil Fawlty theory ‘Well, they STARTED the war, didn’t they? They invaded Poland!’
Actually, come to think of it. I can’t imagine how outrageously insulting and hurtful it must have been for that generation of Germans who had lived through the war and post war, suffering all sorts of hardship and abuse and then had to put up with asinine jokes and comedy skits that made fun of the conflict that had resulted in the brutal murder of millions of their kin, topped off by the massive lie that they had been personally responsible for the whole atrocity. The U.S. Secretary of War during World War Two was a certain Henry L. Stimson (an ex-diplomat. Go figure.) who was virtually singularly responsible for removing the Japanese cultural capital of Kyoto from the list of Atomic bomb targets and hurriedly substituting Nagasaki instead. His reasoning, along with other Proto-Multiculturalists, was that it was such a beautiful city, so vital to the Japanese character and identity, that destroying it would ‘rip out the heart’ of the Japanese culture and, presumably, render them useless for cooperation in the great ‘reconstruction’ and ‘rehabilitation’ program.
The question literally screaming to be asked, of course, is why such apparently brow furrowing, hand wringing sensitivity was lavished upon these impassive, sallow skinned, squinty eyed, bow legged, bucked toothed, psychopathic Pagan Yellow Devils who had raped, tortured and murdered their way through the Pacific (actually DOING the stuff the National Socialists were accused of…and in spades) while the White Christian European Germans had their priceless cultural and historical sites, including the finest examples of Gothic Cathedrals etc, quite DELIBERATELY and ruthlessly targeted for absolute destruction and obliteration from Human History. The nation that had gifted the World with the exquisite genius of Bach, Beethoven, Durer, Goethe, Wagner et al was slated for EXTERMINATION by loathsome creatures not fit to do their laundry. Although your Old Uncle Victor can personally recall viewing HUNDREDS of Hollywood Movies with lurid, cartoonish depictions of alleged ‘Nazi’ brutality perpetrated by cruel ‘Aryan’ types he can only remember TWO films which portrayed the sadism and savagery of the Japanese military, ‘Bridge on the River Kwai’ and ‘Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence’.
Apparently the Chinese, who suffered terribly under Nippon’s jackboot, have made several of their own films but in the Western ‘Anglosphere’ they would be virtually unknown. The very concept itself of the entire Allied Bombing Campaign in Europe, with its vile tactic of indiscriminate ‘carpet bombing' carried out by ‘Thousand Bomber raids’, almost exclusively on Civilian Germany, was nothing more than bitter and indulgent vengeance demanded by the high ranking Jews such as Henry Morgenthau and hundreds of other ‘advisers’ who had wormed their way into key positions in the Allied leadership. This campaign was based on the principle of demoralisation and the crushing of the spirit of the Central European peoples who comprised the German Reich and their high culture of fine arts and technology. Why else firebomb an undefended, declared ‘open city’ full of refugees like Dresden? This was TERRORISM and ATROCITY writ large and possibly the worst (single incident) War Crime ever committed in Europe.
For the information of the gentle reader the average mortality rate for Allied prisoners in Japanese P.O.W. camps was 45% whereas the rate for Allied prisoners held in German P.O.W. camps was merely 4%!!! So why was Germany so comprehensively demolished and their regime so demonised by the official ‘histories’ and decades of popular culture? It can be but one thing. The Germans had humiliated and expelled the Jews. The Japanese by comparison had only raped, tortured and murdered other wretched Goyim including an estimated TWENTY MILLION Chinese alone. As the Talmud teaches though, a thousand Goyim are not worth One Jewish Fingernail.
Do the Maths…
G.I.'s 'mucking in' with some freelance dentistry...Those Third Worlders know nothing about dental hygeine...Thank God for Amerika...

Once you go black, the country doesn’t come back.

One of the best articles I have read in a very long time. Our nations our culture our heritage is under siege. It does not matter if this article is written for the US market, it reads the same for all Western Nations and White Folk who strive to survive in a world that has gone mad.

"Do you get it yet?

Look, I know you probably despise us. You’ve been told your entire life – by your schools, your churches, and your heroes of sport, screen, and stage – that there is no greater sin than racism. You wanted to be a good person. Heck, you are a good person.

So you treated everyone with respect, no matter where they came from. You figured everyone should have an opportunity. You believed in playing by the rules. You believed in freedom. You believed in America. You thought that what makes this country great is that everyone, from whatever background, can make it together. You may have even voted for Obama that first time, despite some policy disagreements, because you really wanted to believe that race is irrelevant, that skin tone doesn’t matter, that the only colors we need are Red, White, and Blue.

You’re a conservative, maybe even a libertarian. But you don’t want to make “arbitrary” distinctions between people. After all, we’re all children of our Creator. So you gave Obama a chance.

Unfortunately, instead of hope and change, you got a national health care program that frightened you and would increase your health care costs. You got more racial division, not less. The economy didn’t improve – in some places, it got worse. There was a huge stimulus program – but you can’t say what all that money was spent on. And because you care about your country, you worry about the debt, and federal spending, and fiscal responsibility.

So you supported Mitt Romney. Perhaps you even participated in a Tea Party rally or two a few years ago, careful to stick to fiscal issues rather than divisive social concerns. You were embarrassed by how white the rallies were and did your best to bring in racial minorities. You liked Herman Cain. You liked Allen West. You wanted to get blacks off the Democratic Plantation.

The economy was collapsing so you supported a campaign focused on growing the pot for everyone. You said a rising tide lifts all boats. You talked about jobs, about growth, about making America proud again. You talked about how blacks are hit more than anyone else from the bad economy, how Hispanics in Nevada have been devastated by crushing unemployment, how a culture of dependency is taking root in entire communities. And you believed the conservative pundits that told you that America was rising, as one, to bring about real change.

And because you’re a patriot, you felt justified in being angry. You felt your blood boil when you read how Americans begging for help as terrorists stormed into our embassy were contemptuously ignored for hours. Your heart broke when you read about the mother of the Navy SEAL crying out in anguish that “Obama murdered my son” and a grieving father at his son’s funeral treated to our buffoon of a Vice President joking about testicles. Your jaw dropped when Bill Clinton gloated that the military is “less racist, less sexist, less homophobic” now that Barack is in charge. You watched in disbelief as the President of the United States palled around with interviewers on hip hop shows like the “Pimp With a Limp” on the anniversary of 9/11 and used former crack dealers turned rappers on the campaign. You knew something was wrong, but come Election Day, we’d “Remember in November” and America would be America again.

And then this.

So you’re probably in a state of shock. They all lied to you. It wasn’t even close. Ohio, Pennsylvania, even Virginia – Virginia! – the great Southern state of Washington, Jefferson, and Lee. All went to Barack Obama. And as you watched the gloating on MSNBC, the victory parties in the major cities, the undisguised loathing for you at the likes of the Huffington Post, or Gawker, or Slate, you felt a sick feeling in your gut that something was deeply wrong.

Mitt Romney won the same share of the white vote as Ronald Reagan. It didn’t matter. You worked your butt off at your church, your charity group, your neighbors. It was undone by some Somalis who can’t speak English that the Democrats bussed in and told to vote “Brown all the way down,” and they weren’t just referring to the Democratic candidate’s name.

Take a good, hard look at those Obama victory rallies. They are celebrating your dispossession, your displacement from the country your ancestors built. They don’t even disguise their hatred. And even though you don’t think in terms of race, they do.

Michael Moore called it a victory over hate. Howard Fineman gloated that America was turning it’s back on tradition, and thank God. Twitter erupted with black voters screeching in triumph, bragging that America belongs to them now.

Even the President of the United States said “voting is the best revenge.” Revenge for what? Aren’t we all in this together? Doesn’t this country belong to all of us?

Do you get it yet? It’s revenge against you – for existing. It’s revenge for “racism,” for conservatism, for success, for being strong, and proud and accomplished. It’s vengeance against the America that once was. They have their revenge for the fact that your country existed. Barack Obama is President of these states united, and was re-elected because, not in spite of the fact that he despises everything America was.

Look, I was like you. I was a patriotic, normal Republican. I knocked on doors for city council. I wanted Colin Powell to be President, because “a black Republican will help everyone get beyond race!” I was there too.

And then I started looking around.

It doesn’t matter if black unemployment is skyrocketing and their communities are devastated – they vote black. It doesn’t matter if Nevada has the worst economy in the country – they vote Hispanic. It doesn’t matter if candidates are running for re-election from the Mayo Clinic, or Congressmen think islands tip over if too many people are on them, or if blacks are worse off, by every measure, when African-Americans on in charge. It simply doesn’t matter.

There are vast swaths of the country where elections, policies, and good government simply no longer matter. Camden, NJ, Detroit, MI, Birmingham, AL, and other once proud metropolis are shattered wastelands, and they are lost – forever – regardless of how bad they get. Let’s make it perfectly clear – George W. Bush was probably the last Republican President this country will ever see. Once you go black, the country doesn’t come back.

Perhaps you think it will all be OK if the GOP just wins the Hispanic vote. After all, Newt Gingrich and Karl Rove tell you they are socially conservative and patriotic. Unfortunately, they favor Obamacare even more than they favor unrestricted immigration. They have their problems with President Obama – because he doesn’t support immigration enough. If you want to win the minority vote, you have to become more liberal on economic issues. Even the Beltway conservatives know it. And despite what your ministers and priests tell you about “Christian Hispanics,” they have higher rates of illegitimate births and abortions too.

Well, c’est la vie. America is still America. Government isn’t everything right? You can still have a decent life in this country, right?


You probably have a kid or two. Do you have any illusions about what he is learning in school? He is being taught that white people are uniquely evil, that he is the recipient of unearned “privilege” because he was born, and that to be a moral person, he has to turn his back on his ancestors – i.e. you. If you’re a Christian, you’re faithfully taking your child to church once a week – and five days a week he’s being taught about the glories of homosexuality, or the wonders of Islam, or how black people single-handedly built Western Civilization. None of it makes sense – except that it is all targeted against you.

Let’s say you send him to college. Well, you can look forward to paying off student loan debt for the rest of your life. It would be great if you could get free money for college on account of your race, but you’re white, so no one cares about you. This assumes your child can even get into a decent school, as every major school in the country fiercely defends anti-white racial preferences.

What will he learn there? Well, he will be carefully taught to despise you, that your religion is nonsense, and that his heritage is evil. Professors admit this is their job. But the fiscal crunch will cut the fat, right? Actually, schools are cutting mathematics and serious programs, while shoveling more money to anti-white programs. The school will pay tens of thousands of dollars of your tuition money to bring in guys like Tim Wise, who will gloat that “CONSERVATIVE WHITE PEOPLE, yr nation has left the building.” And all these professors, and anti-racist guest lecturers, and professional “activists” for causes you’ve never heard of will make more money than you ever will – and you’re paying their salaries.

Now that you’ve bankrupted yourself and burdened your child with student loans, it’s time to get a job. Unfortunately, there are few to be had. The government is still hiring, but unfortunately, your “white privilege” doesn’t extend to having a job.

You know who else defends them? Corporate America. The 1% is actually pushing anti-white racial preferences more than the universities. Wal-Mart, McDonald’s, Microsoft, and all the great “job producers” that you’ve been defending? They despise you, give money to your enemies, and discriminate against you because you’re white. When your right to be treated equally went before the Supreme Court, sixty-eight Fortune 500 companies filed amicus briefs to make sure you and your children can’t get jobs. Those are the people you want to give tax cuts.

Want to have a small business? Better not try to do anything with the government or from federal funds – those are set aside for minorities. Also, any of your nonwhite competitors get special financial benefits for operating so good luck competing. Incidentally, Barack Obama is going to dump some more regulations and taxes on you, especially through Obamacare. The Secretary of the Treasury doesn’t have to pay taxes, but, well, you do.

Well, maybe you want to be a cop or a fireman then. You can’t. Those jobs are set aside for minorities, even those who can’t pass the test. Especially those who can’t pass the test. Remember those heroic NYC firefighters on 9/11? Well, your government sued them for being too white and racist. Even dying for your masters doesn’t get you anything.

Let’s say against all odds, you manage to get a job. Well, better keep your head down. You never know when a co-worker will accuse you of racism or sexism. There doesn’t need to be a reason – it could just be out of spite. Or because you’re Republican. Or because you reported them for stealing or incompetence. If anything, count yourself lucky they don’t shoot you – the media will report that you, as a racist, had it coming. Every moment, of every day, you are on the brink of professional and personal destruction, because you are white.

At least you can come home to a loving family right? Well, if your children watch television, they are being carefully instructed to disregard anything you teach them. Even children’s programming executives laugh about how what they do is a “fuck you to the right wing.” When they grow up, they’ll worship celebrities of dubious talent who mock and despise you. You’re surrounded by filth – you can’t go to a restaurant or a store without background music from some bimbo relying on autotune to “sing” about S&M or threesomes.

Of course, that’s assuming your kids aren’t another victim of “random” crime by “youths.”
As a father, sitcoms portray you as an idiot. As a husband, commercials mock you as sexually undesirable because of your race. As a white man, movies openly call for you to be killed. And if by chance you do something admirable, why, Hollywood simply changes the race.

And what about your wife? Of course you love her. But what is the culture telling her? If she leaves you, she gets your kids, your money, and any future earnings. The culture tells her she has no obligation to you or your children. The law rewards her if she abandons you. The media tells you the real problem is a “war on women.” Maybe you’ve got a great girl, but just take a glance around the broken families and shattered men around this country, and ask yourself if the United States is a fit place for decent men and decent families.

Starting to get it yet? Every moment of every day, you have to bend the knee. Then, maybe, they’ll let you have your job so you can pay taxes to sustain people who hate you. Maybe, you’ll have the privilege of working long hours to pay the mortgage, which costs you more, because you’re white. Maybe, you can spend a few years with the children that the entire society is trying to turn against you. Maybe you can have a dinner with the woman you love and hope that she can ignore the culture telling her she’s a traitor to her sex by staying with you. Maybe you can avoid the doom that hangs over your head every second.

And then, you can die. In fact, hurry up and do it. The Democrats are more becoming bolder in just telling you these things.

The worst part is you had it easy compared to your kids.

Then, when it’s all over, your life wasn’t nothing. It was less than nothing. You actively contributed to your own destruction. Despite your surrender and respectability, you’ll be remembered as a racist, a relic of an evil society.

Want to change this? Well, you will never have the possibility of Republicans fixing the problem for you. Ever again.

This isn’t Network. I’m not going to tell you I don’t know how to make things better. I’m not going to tell you to get angry. I know you’re angry and it hasn’t done a damn bit of good for you or anyone else.

I’m going tell you what the solution is.

Everything you loved about what used to be your country came from one group of people. It’s the group you belong to. It’s the white race. And it’s not an accident that the same people who hate your country, your religion, and your family hate your race more than anything.

You’re a white man. “American” doesn’t mean anything anymore. If anything, citizenship is actually a burden. As a white American, you are a second-class citizen in jobs, education, and government benefits. No one cares about you and no one ever will. Those in power will deny that your suffering even exists. So why are you fighting for these people?

The nation you loved is still there. But it’s not in the flag of a government that hates you or in the guns that serve people who don’t care about you. It’s in the faces of the white people that built this country and that sustain it today. That’s what you have to fight for.

You need to fight for a country of your own. We need revolution if ordinary people anytime, anywhere are to have anything even close to a moral and pleasurable life. And it makes more sense than spending your rapidly diminishing days shuffling through this horrifying nightmare that used to be your country.

You aren’t alone. We’re fighting for it right now. I can’t force you to join us. I don’t know where you are in your life.

But I want you to know one thing. You can’t pretend you don’t know anymore.

You can’t kid around with talk about “taking back the country,” or “freedom,” or “liberty,” or the “Real America.” This is the Real America now. This is freedom. This is what it led to. This is the only thing it could have led to. What happened to the American Dream? It came true. “Equality” is being taken to its logical conclusion – and all you can ever hope for is serving the people who hate you.

You can’t pretend this is still your country or that you are a free man. You aren’t. You can’t pretend that you can keep playing by the rules and somehow win. You won’t. 

I’m not saying you need to drop everything. I’m not pretending I know exactly what to do. But I’m saying you need to remind yourself each morning that you are a slave and people who hate you rule you. I’m saying you need to recognize that America today is a filthy lie, the most vile and despicable fiction ever foisted upon decent people. I’m saying everything good and generous about you is being used to kill you. I’m saying there are people out there like us who really care about you and want to help you. Your government and your society does not.

You can ignore me. Wave the American flag and pretend everything is going to be OK.  But it won’t be. Turn on the TV. Listen to the radio. Look – really look ­– at the culture that surrounds you. I think you know it too.

Do you get it yet? America, your America, is finished. But you don’t have to be. It’s time to fight for what comes next. It’s time to fight for a country of our own.

It’s time to stop being Americans. It’s time to start being White Men again."

Cruel Britannia ctd...

From an article written by Ian Cobain in The Guardian Newspaper and published on Saturday 17th December 2005

Despite the six years of bitter fighting which lay behind him, James Morgan-Jones, a major in the Royal Artillery, could not have been more specific about the spectacle in front of him - "It was," he reported, "one of the most disgusting sights of my life."
Curled up on a bed in a hospital in Rotenburg, near Bremen, was a cadaverous shadow of a human being. "The man literally had no flesh on him, his state of emaciation was incredible," wrote Morgan-Jones. This man had weighed a little over six stones (38kg) on admission five weeks earlier, and "was still a figure which may well have been one of the Belsen inmates". At the base of his spine "was a huge festering sore" and he was clearly terrified of returning to the prison where he had been brought so close to death. "If ever a man showed fear - he did," Morgan-Jones declared.

Adolf Galla, 36, a dental technician, was not alone. A few beds away lay Robert Buttlar, 27, a journalist, who had been admitted after swallowing a spoon handle in a suicide attempt at the same prison. He too was emaciated and four of his toes had been lost to frostbite.
The previous month, January 1947, two other inmates, Walter Bergmann, 20, and Franz Osterreicher, 38, had died of malnutrition within hours of arriving at the hospital. Over the previous 13 months, Major Morgan-Jones learned, 45 inmates of this prison, including several women, had been dumped at Rotenburg. Each was severely starved, frostbitten, and caked in dirt. Some had been beaten or whipped.

The same week that Major Morgan-Jones was submitting his report, a British doctor called Jordan was raising similar concerns at an internment camp 130 miles away. Dr Jordan complained to his superiors that eight men who had been transferred from the same prison "were all suffering gross malnutrition ... one in my opinion dying".
They included Gerhard Menzel, 23, a 6ft German former soldier who weighed seven stones, and was described as a living skeleton. Another, admitted as Morice Marcellini, a 27-year-old Frenchman, later transpired to be Alexander Kalkowski, a captain in the Soviet secret police, the NKVD. He weighed a little over eight stones, and complained that he had been severely beaten and forced to spend eight hours a day in a cold bath.

Prisoners complained thumbscrews and "shin screws" were employed at the prison and Dr Jordan's report highlighted the small, round scars that he had seen on the legs of two men, "which were said to be the result of the use of some instrument to facilitate questioning". One of these men was Hans Habermann, a 43-year-old disabled German Jew who had survived three years in Buchenwald concentration camp.
All of these men had been held at Bad Nenndorf, a small, once-elegant spa resort near Hanover. Here, an organisation called the Combined Services Detailed Interrogation Centre (CSDIC) ran a secret prison following the British occupation of north-west Germany in 1945.

CSDIC, a division of the War Office, operated interrogation centres around the world, including one known as the London Cage, located in one of London's most exclusive neighbourhoods. Official documents discovered last month at the National Archives at Kew, south-west London, show that the London Cage was a secret torture centre where German prisoners who had been concealed from the Red Cross were beaten, deprived of sleep, and threatened with execution or with unnecessary surgery.
As horrific as conditions were at the London Cage, Bad Nenndorf was far worse. Last week, Foreign Office files which have remained closed for almost 60 years were opened after a request by the Guardian under the Freedom of Information Act. These papers, and others declassified earlier, lay bare the appalling suffering of many of the 372 men and 44 women who passed through the centre during the 22 months it operated before its closure in July 1947.

They detail the investigation carried out by a Scotland Yard detective, Inspector Tom Hayward, following the complaints of Major Morgan-Jones and Dr Jordan. Despite the precise and formal prose of the detective's report to the military government, anger and revulsion leap from every page as he turns his spotlight on a place where prisoners were systematically beaten and exposed to extreme cold, where some were starved to death and, allegedly, tortured with instruments that his fellow countrymen had recovered from a Gestapo prison in Hamburg. Even today, the Foreign Office is refusing to release photographs taken of some of the "living skeletons" on their release.

Initially, most of the detainees were Nazi party members or former members of the SS, rounded up in an attempt to thwart any Nazi insurgency. A significant number, however, were industrialists, tobacco importers, oil company bosses or forestry owners who had flourished under Hitler.
By late 1946, the papers show, an increasing number were suspected Soviet agents. Some were NKVD officers - Russians, Czechs and Hungarians - but many were simply German leftists. Others were Germans living in the Russian zone who had crossed the line, offered to spy on the Russians, and were tortured to establish whether they were genuine defectors.

One of the men who was starved to death, Walter Bergmann, had offered to spy for the British, and fell under suspicion because he spoke Russian. Hayward reported: "There seems little doubt that Bergmann, against whom no charge of any crime has ever been made, but on the contrary, who appears to be a man who has given every assistance, and that of considerable value, has lost his life through malnutrition and lack of medical care".
The other man who starved to death, Franz Osterreicher, had been arrested with forged papers while attempting to enter the British zone in search of his gay lover. Hayward said that "in his struggle for existence or to get extra scraps of food he stood a very poor chance" at Bad Nenndorf.

Many of Bad Nenndorf's inmates were there for no reason at all. One, a former diplomat, remained locked up because he had "learned too much about our interrogation methods". Another arrived after a clerical error, and was incarcerated for eight months. As Inspector Hayward reported: "There are a number against whom no offence has been alleged, and the only authority for their detention would appear to be that they are citizens of a country still nominally at war with us."
Today, the older people of Bad Nenndorf talk about August 1 1945, the day the British arrived, with undisguised bitterness. A convoy of trucks pulled into the village, and the Tommies took over from an easygoing US infantry division. Within hours, the British had ordered everybody in the centre of the village to pack their belongings and leave. Bad Nenndorf was heaving with refugees from the bomb-ravaged ruins of Hanover, 18 miles to the east: hundreds of people were given 90 minutes to pack some food and valuables, and get out.

"We thought everyone would be allowed back in a few days," recalls Walter Münstermann, now a retired newspaperman, but then a 14-year-old. "Then the soldiers started putting barbed wire fences around the centre of the village, and slowly we began to realise that this was going to be no ordinary camp."
Walter and his neighbours realised that the centre of their village was being transformed into a prison camp when they heard that the British were converting a large, 40-year-old bath-house, ripping out the baths and installing heavy steel doors to turn each cubicle into a cell. They saw the first batch of prisoners arrive in the back of a truck. Later groups arrived at the village railway station in cattle trucks.

Ingrid Groth, then a seven-year-old, said locals claimed that if you crept up to the barbed wire at night, you could hear the prisoners' screams. Mr Münstermann, who passed the main gate on his way to school each day, insists that the opposite was true: that it was a sinister place precisely because "you never, ever saw anyone, and you never heard a sound". Among the people of Lower Saxony, Bad Nenndorf became known as das verbotene dorf - the forbidden village.
The commanding officer was Robin "Tin Eye" Stephens, 45, a monocled colonel of the Peshawar Division of the Indian Army who had been seconded to MI5 in 1939, and who had commanded Camp 020, a detention centre in Surrey where German spies had been interrogated during the war.

An authoritarian and a xenophobe with a legendary temper, Stephens boasted that interrogators who could "break" a man were born, and not made. Of the 20 interrogators ordered to break the inmates of Bad Nenndorf, 12 were British, a combination of officers from the three services and civilian linguists. The remaining eight included a Pole and a Dutchman, but were mostly German Jewish refugees who had enlisted on the outbreak of war, and who, Inspector Hayward suggested, "might not be expected to be wholly impartial".
Most of the warders were soldiers barely out of their teens. Some had endured more than a year of combat, at the end of which they had liberated Belsen. Some represented the more unruly elements of the British Army of the Rhine, sent to Bad Nenndorf after receiving suspended sentences for assault or desertion. Often, Hayward said, they were the sort of individuals "likely to resort to violence on helpless men".

The inmates were starved, woken during the night, and forced to walk up and down their cells from early morning until late at night. When moving about the prison they were expected to run, while soldiers kicked them. One warder, a soldier of the Welsh Regiment, told Hayward: "If a British soldier feels inclined to treat a prisoner decently he has every opportunity to do so; and he also has the opportunity to ill-treat a prisoner if he so desires".
The Foreign Office briefed Clement Attlee, the prime minister, that "the guards had apparently been instructed to carry out physical assaults on certain prisoners with the object of reducing them to a state of physical collapse and of making them more amenable to interrogation".

Former prisoners told Hayward that they had been whipped as well as beaten. This, the detective said, seemed unbelievable, until "our inquiries of warders and guards produced most unexpected corroboration". Threats to execute prisoners, or to arrest, torture and murder their wives and children were considered "perfectly proper", on the grounds that such threats were never carried out.
Moreover, any prisoner thought to be uncooperative during interrogation was taken to a punishment cell where they would be stripped and repeatedly doused in water. This punishment could continue for weeks, even in sub-zero temperatures.

Naked prisoners were handcuffed back-to-back and forced to stand before open windows in midwinter. Frostbite became common. One victim of the cold cell punishment was Buttlar, who swallowed the spoon handle to escape. An anti-Nazi, he had spent two years as a prisoner of the Gestapo. "I never in all those two years had undergone such treatments," he said.
Kalkowski, the NKVD officer, claimed that toenails were ripped out and that he had been hung from his wrists during interrogation, with weights tied to his legs. British NCOs, he alleged, would beat him with rubber truncheons "while the interrogating officers went for lunch". Hayward concluded, however, that "there was not a shred of evidence to support these allegations".

Whatever was happening during the interrogations must have been widely known among many of the camp's officers and men. In common with every CSDIC prison, each cell was bugged, so that the prisoners' private utterances could be matched against their "confessions".
Inspector Hayward's investigation led to the courts martial of Stephens, Captain John Smith, Bad Nenndorf's medical officer, and an interrogator, Lieutenant Richard Langham. The hearings were largely held behind closed doors. A number of sergeants - men who had carried out the beatings - were told they would be pardoned if they gave evidence against their officers.

Langham, who had been born in Munich and fled to England with his parents in 1934, at the age of 13, denied that he had mistreated prisoners and was acquitted. Charges of manslaughter against Smith were dropped but, after a court martial held entirely in secret, he was found guilty of the neglect of inmates and sentenced, at the age of 49, to be dismissed the service.
It is unclear whether any of Stephens's superiors knew, or condoned, what had happened at Bad Nenndorf, although his lawyers said they were prepared to spread the blame among senior army officers and Foreign Office officials. Before his court martial began there was nervous debate among ministers and government officials about how to avoid the repercussions which would follow, should the truth become known.

Ministers were anxious that nobody should learn that CSDIC was running a number of similar prisons in Germany. There was also what the chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Frank Pakenham, later to become Lord Longford, described as "the fact that we are alleged to have treated internees in a manner reminiscent of the German concentration camps". The army, meanwhile, said it was determined the Soviets should not discover "how we apprehended and treated their agents", not least because some would-be defectors might have second thoughts.
Finally, there was the inevitable fall-out for Attlee's Labour government. As Hector McNeill, foreign minister, pointed out in a memo to Ernest Bevin, the foreign secretary: "I doubt if I can put too strongly the parliamentary consequences of publicity. Whenever we have any allegations to make about the political police methods in Eastern European states it will be enough to call out in the House 'Bad Nenndorf', and no reply is left to us."

Stephens was eventually court martialled behind closed doors. Amid complaints of a half-hearted prosecution, he was acquitted of two charges, two others were withdrawn, and he was free to apply to rejoin MI5.
In Bad Nenndorf, the remaining prisoners were shipped out, the wire ripped down, and the prison shut down. The baths were reinstalled in the cubicles and, gradually, the spa returned to its traditional business of catering for the health needs of elderly German tourists.

The closure of Bad Nenndorf was not the end of the story, however. The archives reveal that three months later a custom-built interrogation centre, with cells for 30 men and 10 women, was opened near to the British military base at Gütersloh. The inmates were to be suspected Soviet spies, and would be medically examined before interrogation.
When Frank Pakenham complained that most of the interrogators had been at Bad Nenndorf, and demanded that "drastic methods" should not be employed, Major-General Sir Brian Robertson, the military governor, put his foot down.

Why, he exclaimed, if the military authorities were required to justify the arrest of each inmate, and then handle them according to the standards "enforced by the prison commissioners in our own enlightened country", there was little point in having an interrogation centre at all.
Death subterfuge

One of the most bizarre episodes at Bad Nenndorf followed the death of a former SS officer called Abeling. He had been so severely beaten during his arrest in January 1947 that he was unconscious on arrival at the prison, and died shortly afterwards.
The camp's officers instructed a local gravedigger to prepare a grave for a British officer who had died of an infectious disease. Abeling's corpse was sewn into a blanket, lowered in, and covered with quicklime. A firing party was on hand to ensure that the dead man was buried with full British military honours, and a white wooden cross with a false name was erected over the grave.

The reasons for such subterfuge are made clear in declassified Foreign Office papers at the National Archives. Abeling, formerly a member of an "annihilation squad" in Warsaw, had been working as an agent for the Americans at the time of his death, spying on his old Nazi comrades under the codename Slim.
The report notes that the Americans "insisted that 'Slim's' death must be kept a very closely guarded secret, because of the fact that the US authorities had been employing him in the full knowledge that he was wanted by the Polish government as a major war criminal".

Today the wooden cross over Abeling's grave has been replaced with a gravestone. It still bears the name of the man that local people believe to be buried there: John X White, born 1.8.1911, died 17.1.1947.

"THE son of the ALP kingpin Eddie Obeid told a car dealer and close friend that he needed to secure a top-of-the-line Honda CRV for the former NSW treasurer Eric Roozendaal because he ''had done a few favours for dad'', a corruption inquiry has heard. 

The Independent Commission Against Corruption was also told that Obeid Corporation paid $10,800 towards the $44,000 purchase, which had the effect of giving Mr Roozendaal a sweetheart deal on the car.

''It does seem plain,'' counsel assisting the inquiry, Geoffrey Watson, SC, said, ''that Mr Roozendaal received a kind of gift from Moses Obeid, yet Mr Roozendaal appears not to have recorded the gift on the parliamentary register. ''Mr Obeid and his family are very active businessmen, involved in a number of different enterprises, many of which could benefit from different types of decisions that a minister might make.''

Thursday marked the opening of a five-month inquiry into some of the most senior cabinet ministers in the former state government. It will focus not only on allegations concerning Mr Roozendaal's purchase in 2007 but also accusations that coal licences worth millions of dollars were issued corruptly.

For the next week the inquiry would focus solely on the ''bizarre'' car purchase and on the involvement of the Obeid family and its associates in the transaction, said the Commissioner, David Ipp, QC.

The wider investigation into the coal deals, which will also focus on the Obeid family and on the disgraced former resources minister, Ian Macdonald, will not begin until later this month and will run at least until March.

A panel beater and car dealer, Peter Fitzhenry, who said he once considered himself best friends with Eddie Obeid's son Moses, told the inquiry of a request he received from Moses in 2007 to obtain a ''top-of-the-range'' Honda CRV. ''He said to me that the car was to be bought for Eric because Eric had done a few favours for dad,'' Mr Fitzhenry said.

The commission was shown numerous diary entries by Mr Fitzhenry that noted the request and named Mr Roozendaal and his wife, Amanda. ''Financial benefits like the one here can be provided as an inducement for corrupt conduct, or as a reward for corrupt conduct,'' Mr Watson said. ''Gifts and favours usually require reciprocation.''

The car was initially bought in the name of Nata Re, the sister of other Obeid family friends, the brothers Rocco and Rosario Triulcio. It also passed through the hands of another car dealer, Keith Goodman.

Earlier, Mr Watson said that ''to be fair'', Moses Obeid had explained that the car deal was to resolve a ''nasty dispute'' between Rocco Triulcio and Mr Fitzhenry. ''Part of the purpose of this public inquiry will be to attempt to determine whether or not that innocent explanation should be accepted,'' Mr Watson said. ''I regret to say that the evidence suggests that it cannot. ''There is only one rational explanation: the course of events, and especially the multiple handling of the ownership of the car, is only consistent with a deliberate attempt to disguise aspects of the deal.''There are other features of these transactions, which I will not elaborate upon now, which are even more disturbing.''

We are the good guys, just keep telling yourself that ok.

How Britain tortured Nazi PoWs: The horrifying interrogation methods that belie our proud boast that we fought a clean war  

The German SS officer was fighting to save himself from the gallows for a terrible war crime and might say anything to escape the noose. But Fritz Knöchlein was not lying in 1946 when he claimed that, in captivity in London, he had been tortured by British soldiers to force a confession out of him.

Tortured by British soldiers? In captivity? In London? The idea seems incredible.

Britain has a reputation as a nation that prides itself on its love of fair play and respect for the rule of law. We claim the moral high ground when it comes to human rights. We were among the first to sign the 1929 Geneva Convention on the humane treatment of prisoners of war.

Surely, you would think, the British avoid torture? But you would be wrong, as my research into what has gone on behind closed doors for decades shows.
It was in 2005 during my work as an investigative reporter that I came across a veiled mention of a World War II detention centre known as the London Cage. It took a number of Freedom Of Information requests to the Foreign Office before government files were reluctantly handed over.

From these, a sinister world unfolded — of a torture centre that the British military operated throughout the Forties, in complete secrecy, in the heart of one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in the capital.

Thousands of Germans passed through the unit that became known as the London Cage, where they were beaten, deprived of sleep and forced to assume stress positions for days at a time.

Some were told they were to be murdered and their bodies quietly buried. Others were threatened with unnecessary surgery carried out by people with no medical qualifications. Guards boasted that they were ‘the English Gestapo’.

The London Cage was part of a network of nine ‘cages’ around Britain run by the Prisoner of War Interrogation Section (PWIS), which came under the jurisdiction of the Directorate of Military Intelligence.

Three, at Doncaster, Kempton Park and Lingfield, were at hastily converted racecourses. Another was at the ground of Preston North End Football Club. Most were benignly run. But prisoners thought to possess valuable information were whisked off to a top-secret unit in a row of grandiose Victorian villas in Kensington Palace Gardens, then (as now) one of the smartest locations in London. Today, the tree-lined street a stone’s throw from Kensington Palace is home to ambassadors and billionaires, sultans and princes. Houses change hands for £50 million and more.

Yet it was here, seven decades ago, in five interrogation rooms, in cells and in the guardroom in numbers six, seven and eight Kensington Palace Gardens, that nine officers, assisted by a dozen NCOs, used whatever methods they thought necessary to squeeze information from suspects. 
Of course, it is crucial to put these events into context. When the gloves first came off at Britain’s interrogation centres — the summer of 1940 — German forces were racing across France and the Low Countries, and Britain was fighting for its very survival. The stakes could not have been higher.

In the following years, large parts of Britain’s cities were left in ruins, hundreds of thousands of service personnel and civilians died, and barely a day passed without evidence emerging of a new Nazi atrocity. Little wonder, perhaps, that it was felt acceptable for German prisoners to suffer in British interrogation centres.
And it should also be said that whatever went on within their walls, it paled into insignificance compared with the horrors the Nazis visited on millions of prisoners.
So, how can we be sure about the methods used at the London Cage? Because the man who ran it admitted as much — and was hushed up for half-a-century by an establishment fearful of the shame his story would bring on a Britain that had been fighting for honesty, decency and the rule of law.

That man was Colonel Alexander Scotland, an accepted master in techniques of interrogation. After the war, he wrote a candid account of his activities in his memoirs, in which he recalled how he would muse, on arriving at the Cage each morning: ‘Abandon all hope ye who enter here.’
Because, he said, before going into detail: ‘If any German had any information we wanted, it was invariably extracted from him in the long run.’

As was customary, before publication Scotland submitted his manuscript to the War Office for clearance in 1954. Pandemonium erupted. All four copies were seized. All those who knew of its contents were silenced with threats of prosecution under the Official Secrets Act.

What caused the greatest consternation was his admission that the horrors had continued after the war, when interrogators switched from extracting military intelligence to securing convictions for war crimes.

Of 3,573 prisoners who passed through Kensington Palace Gardens, more than 1,000 were persuaded to sign a confession or give a witness statement  for use in war crimes prosecutions. Fritz Knöchlein, a former lieutenant colonel in the Waffen SS, was one such case. He was suspected of ordering the machine-gunning of 124 British soldiers who surrendered at Le Paradis in northern France during the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940. His defence was that he was not even there.

At his trial, he claimed he had been tortured in the London Cage after the war. He was deprived of sleep for four days and nights after arriving in October 1946 and forced to walk in a tight circle for four hours while being kicked by a guard at each turn.
He was made to clean stairs and lavatories with a tiny rag, for days at a time, while buckets of water were poured over him. If he dared to rest, he was cudgelled. He was also forced to run in circles in the grounds of the house while carrying heavy logs and barrels. When he complained, the treatment simply got worse.

Nor was he the only one. He said men were repeatedly beaten about the face and had hair ripped from their heads. A fellow inmate begged to be killed because he couldn’t take any more brutality. 
All Knöchlein’s accusations were ignored, however. He was found guilty and hanged.

Suspects in another high-profile war crime — the shooting of 50 RAF officers who broke out from a prison camp, Stalag Luft III, in what became known as the Great Escape — also passed through the Cage. 
Of the 21 accused, 14 were hanged after a war-crimes trial in Hamburg. Many confessed only after being interrogated by Scotland and his men. In court, they protested that they had been starved, whipped and systematically beaten. Some said they had been  menaced with red-hot pokers and ‘threatened with electrical devices’. Scotland, of course, denied allegations of torture, going into the witness box at one trial after another to say his accusers were lying.

It was all the more surprising, then, that a few years later he was willing to come clean about the techniques he employed at the London Cage.

In his memoirs, he disclosed that a number of men were forced to incriminate themselves. A general was sentenced to death in 1946 after signing a confession at the Cage while, in Scotland’s words, ‘acutely depressed after the various examinations’.

A naval officer was convicted on the basis of a confession that Scotland said he had signed only after being ‘subject to certain degrading duties’.  Scotland also acknowledged that one of the men accused of the ‘Great Escape’ murders went to the gallows even though he had confessed after he had — in Scotland’s own words — been ‘worked on psychologically’. At his trial, the man insisted he had been ‘worked on’ physically as well.

Others did not share Scotland’s eagerness to boast about what had gone on in Kensington Park Gardens. An MI5 legal adviser who read his manuscript concluded that Scotland and fellow interrogators had been guilty of a ‘clear breach’ of the Geneva Convention.

They could have faced war-crimes charges themselves for forcing prisoners to stand to attention for more than 24 hours at a time; forcing them to kneel while they were beaten about the head; threatening to have them shot; threatening one prisoner with an unnecessary appendix operation to be performed on him by another inmate with no medical qualifications.

Appalled by the embarrassment his manuscript would cause if it ever came out, the War Office and the Foreign Office both declared that it would never see the light of day.

Two years later, however, they were forced to strike a deal with him after he threatened to publish his book abroad. He was told he would never be allowed to recover his original manuscript, but agreement was given to a rewritten version in which every line of incriminating material had been expunged.

A heavily censored version of The London Cage duly appeared in the bookshops in 1957.  But officials at the War Office, and their successors at the Ministry of Defence, remained troubled.   Years later, in September 1979, Scotland’s publishers wrote to the Ministry of Defence out of the blue asking for a copy of the original manuscript  by the now dead colonel for their archives.

The request triggered fresh panic as civil servants sought reasons to deny the request. But in the end they quietly deposited a copy in what is now the National Archives at Kew, where it went unnoticed — until I found it a quarter of a century later.
Is there more to tell about the London Cage? Almost certainly. Even now, some of the MoD’s files on it remain beyond reach.

Scotland, his interrogators, technicians and typists, and the towering guardsmen left the building in January 1949. The villas were unoccupied for several years.

Eventually, numbers six and seven were leased to the Soviet Union, which was looking for a new embassy building. Today, they house the chancery of the Russian embassy.

Number eight — where it is thought the worst excesses were carried out — remained empty. It was too large to be a family home in the post-war years and in too poor a state of repair to be converted to offices. By 1955, the building had fallen into such disrepair it was sold to a developer, who knocked it down and built a block of three luxury flats. One that went on the market in 2006 was valued at £13.5 million.

The Cage was not, however, Britain’s only secret interrogation centre during and after World War II. MI5 also operated an interrogation centre, code-named Camp 020, at Latchmere House, a Victorian mansion near Ham Common in South-West London, whose 30 rooms were turned into cells with hidden microphones.

The first of the German spies who arrived in Britain in September 1940 were taken there. Vital information about a coming German invasion was extracted at great speed. This indicates the use of extreme methods, but these were desperate days demanding desperate measures. In charge was Colonel Robin Stephens, known as ‘Tin Eye’, because of the monocle fixed to his right eye.It was not a term of affection. The object of interrogation, Stephens told his officers, was simple: ‘Truth in the shortest possible time.’ A top secret memo spoke of ‘special methods’, but did not elaborate.

He arranged for an additional 92-cell block to be added to Latchmere House, plus a punishment room — known chillingly as Cell 13 — which was completely bare, with smooth walls and a linoleum floor.

Close to 500 people passed through the gates of Camp 020. Principal among them were German spies, many of whom were ‘turned’ and persuaded — or maybe forced — to work for MI5.

Its first inmates were members of the British Union of Fascists.  Some were held in cells brightly lit 24 hours a day, others in cells kept in total darkness.
Several prisoners were subjected to mock executions and were knocked about by the guards. Some were apparently left naked for months at a time.

Camp 020 had a resident medical officer, Harold Dearden, a psychiatrist who dreamed up regimes of starvation and of sleep and sensory deprivation intended to break the will of its inmates. He experimented in techniques of torment that left few marks — methods that could be denied by the torturers and that civil servants and government ministers could disown.

These techniques surfaced again after the war in a British interrogation facility at Bad Nenndorf, a German spa town, in one of the internment camps for those considered a threat to the Allied occupation.

In the four years after the war, 95,000 people were interned in the British zone of Allied-occupied Germany. Some were interrogated by what was now termed the Intelligence Division.
In charge of Bad Nenndorf was ‘Tin Eye’ Stephens, on attachment from MI5, and drawing on his Camp 020 experiences. An inmate recalled him yelling questions at prisoners and then punching them. 

Over the next two years, 372 men and 44 women would pass through his hands. One German inmate recalled being told by a British intelligence officer: ‘We are not bound by any rules or regulations. We do not care a damn whether you leave this place on a stretcher or in a hearse.’
He was made to sleep on a wet floor in a temperature of minus 20 degrees for three days. Four of his toes had to be amputated due to frostbite.

A doctor in a nearby hospital complained about the number of detainees brought to him filthy, confused and suffering from multiple injuries and frostbite. Many were painfully emaciated after months of starvation. A number died.
The regime was intended to weaken, humiliate and intimidate prisoners.

With complaints soaring, a British court of inquiry was convened to investigate what had been going at Bad Nenndorf. It concluded that former inmates’ allegations of physical assault were substantially correct. Stephens and four other officers were arrested while Bad Nenndorf was abruptly closed.

But there was a quandary for the Labour government. The political fallout could be deeply damaging. There were other similar interrogation centres in Germany.

From the very top, there were urgent moves to hush things up.
Stephens’ court martial for ill-treatment of prisoners was heard behind closed doors. He did not deny any of the horrors. His defence was that he had no idea the prisoners for whom he was responsible were being beaten, whipped, frozen, deprived of sleep and starved to death.

This was the very defence that had been offered — unsuccessfully — by Nazi concentration camp commandants at war-crimes trials. But he was acquitted.

The suspicion remains that he got off because, if cruelties did occur at Bad Nenndorf, they had been authorised by government ministers.
