Murray questions the
intent and capability of the alleged terrorists to carry out the
attack and offers the likelihood that evidence of the plot was
obtained through torture in Pakistan.
"None of the alleged
terrorists had made a bomb. None had bought a plane ticket. Many
did not even have passports, which given the efficiency of the
UK Passport Agency would mean they couldn't be a plane bomber
for quite some time,"
"In the absence of
bombs and airline tickets, and in many cases passports, it could
be pretty difficult to convince a jury beyond reasonable doubt
that individuals intended to go through with suicide bombings,

interrogation in Pakistan revealed the details of this amazing
plot to blow up multiple planes - which, rather extraordinarily,
had not turned up in a year of surveillance. Of course, the
interrogators of the Pakistani dictator have their ways of
making people sing like canaries. As I witnessed in Uzbekistan,
you can get the most extraordinary information this way. Trouble
is it always tends to give the interrogators all they might
want, and more, in a desperate effort to stop or avert torture.
What it doesn't give is the truth."

acquitted and only 2% have ever been convicted on offenses
related to terrorism.
