I remember the Colonial Office propaganda at the time - "Our gallant lads are protecting Kenya from Barbarism and the Communist Threat !"

I'll agree that Britain shouldn't have been in Kenya in the first place.

But the Mau Mau were no saints themselves. They did their share of terror. And not just to the British residents.

About time too. This story has been running for at least a decade. We are talking about torture here not simply warfare.

Why do some keep attacking it in the most bizarre contexts ? What has KSA got to do with the barbaric treatment of Kenyans by the British Colonial Office ?

You have a history of being defensive about Saudi Arabia, and whilst quick to criticise Britain's colonial record you seem to turn a blind eye to KSA's less than stellar human rights reputation.
