Who is Craig Murray?

Craig John Murray is a British blogger, political activist, former ambassador to Uzbekistan and former Rector of the University of Dundee.

While at the embassy in Tashkent, he accused the Karimov administration of human rights abuses, which he argued was a step against the wishes of the British government and the reason for his removal. Murray complained to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in November 2002, January or early February 2003, and in June 2004 that intelligence linking the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan to al-Qaeda was unreliable, immoral and illegal, as this intel was thought to have been obtained through torture. He described this as "selling our souls for dross". He was subsequently removed from his ambassadorial post on 14 October 2004.
