It Was More Than Worth It
Personally I don't believe most of Babar Ahmad's claims, He ran al-Qaeda linked website. So he would be familiar with the strategy outlined in many of al-Qaeda's documents. That strategy is, when captured, always always claim torture.
So even if Babar Ahmad was roughed up a bit, I somehow doubt this caused a big tough Muslime jihadi, severe and lasting physical and mental damage as he claimed. This is the kind of person who sits around every day whacking himself to videos of people having their heads slowly sawed off with a knife. So the arrest was so very very traumatic? Yeah right...
IT. WAS. WORTH. EVERY. EFFING. PENNY.
