Did I hear aright?

The US Ambassador, Robert Tuttle, in a radio interview this morning on the Government's request for the release of non-citizen residents of the UK from Guantanamo, appeared (to me) graciously to concede that they would not be subject to ill-treatment in the UK.

What a gratifying vote of confidence. And how reassuring that the welfare of the people held there is in the forefront of US thinking.

I note, though, that that quote wasn't reproduced in the BBC website's news report.
