Pilger: “Until the High Court hearing last year, I believed the country’s senior judges would reject the US appeal and reclaim something of the mythologized notion of British justice if only for the system’s survival, which partly depends on ‘face’ within the arcane reaches of the British establishment. This show of ‘independence’ in support of justice has happened in the past. In Julian’s case, the facts are surely too outrageous — no properly constituted court would even consider it — yet I was wrong.” (07/28/22)
