#4 | Posted by bayviking Steven Georgiou, Cat Stevens, or Yusuf Islam was on the watch list because he attended a Mosque known to host extremist Imams, primarily because the Brits had him under subservience also. You might remember he met with Saddam immediately before the first gulf war on a self appointed peace mission- he was naive enough to believe that Saddam was actually a Muslim.
Teddy was considered an asset by the KGB, as this was exposed after the Soviet Union collapsed, I do not know if he was an active agent, or just an idiot who wasn't careful about what he talked about when he was drunk, which was a majority of the time especially late in his life, from what I have read.
As far as torturing and killing people, Americans are such pikers at it, we usually have to use third parties. Besides, torture as I was taught before the mid-east wars, isn't particularly effective. If the individual is weak, he will tell you any thing he thinks you want to hear to get you to stop. If he is average, he will lie. If he is strong, you will kill him before he gives up anything. We have had much better luck with drugs. Ask your anesthesiologist. We have more effective drugs than sodium penathal, that was 70 years ago.
