CIA confirms rendition flights details

Thursday, February 21, 2008

WASHINGTON — CIA Director Michael Hayden acknowledged today that two rendition flights carrying terrorism suspects refueled on British territory, despite repeated U.S. assurances that none of the secret flights had used British airspace or soil.

Hayden said information previously provided to the British "turned out to be wrong."

The spy agency reviewed rendition records late last year and discovered that in 2002 the CIA had, in fact, refueled two separate planes, each carrying a terrorist suspect, on Diego Garcia, a British island territory in the Indian Ocean.

"The refueling, conducted more than five years ago, lasted just a short time. But it happened. That we found this mistake ourselves, and that we brought it to the attention of the British government, in no way changes or excuses the reality that we were in the wrong," Hayden said.

British Foreign Secretary David Miliband also announced the rendition flights earlier today. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said he "shared the disappointment that everybody has" about the stops, and that it was important to ensure they would not happen again.

The rendition program secretly transfers alleged terrorists from one country to another without formal extradition proceedings. The flights began after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

The Fig Leaf just fell off .

#44 Tx GTH ,

This is the game the west plays . They do the full menu of terrible and terrorist things but say they don't . Then someone , somewhere and somehow got wind of it  and bang , the fig leaf falls off !  Cover up , put it away , roared the crowd with disapproval .  This is the cat and mouse game that they practice . So to hear them hollering and hootin away , claiming to be whiter than the driven snow is drivel and drip .

Hear hear Mengzhi. Terrible doings with these renditions and torture.

The yanks should take a leaf out of the CCP's book and just classify all the details as "state se-crets" so they can arrest anyone who blabs.

Sound familiar ?

Broken Record .

# 46  emu,

Sounds more than familiar , it is that droning , groaning , rabbiting , rambling , babbling brook which drivels and drools from the mouth of our desert feathered friend .  One key thing which keeps escaping the two neurons in that cranium : US and the west CLAIM to be the keeper of the holy sepulcher . Remember they are the ones who would invade , kill and maim to deliver that god given tablet of  justice ,liberty and democracy !!

Now you see it , now you don't .  I did not realize that being a hypocrite can be so difficult too .

A riot is an ugly thing.... and I think it's just about time we had one.

actually you'll note the additional criteria he qualified this guess with... essentially back to Interesting's ticking bomb scenario.  Even this guy doesn't believe what you just wrote Changy
