UK wartime torture camp

Official papers have been discovered detailing a UK torture camp operated during World War II.

A subsequent assessment by MI5, the Security Service, concluded that the commanding officer had been guilty of "clear breaches" of the Geneva convention and that some interrogation methods "completely contradicted" international law.

This kind of thing is damaging to the UK's reputation 60 years on. Why is the US storing up such trouble for itself by building a global network of these camps now?
