    What a shameful, blatantly dishonest whitewash! Much of the information being denied here is actually in the public domain.

    Stuff like this makes me so ashamed of our current government here in the US... I tried to actually think of something to say, but "shame" pretty much sums it up for me.

    Frankly, I'm far more upset with our own UK lot, for being such pusillanimous wimps and abetting the casual travesty of truth and justice that your lot are promulgating in the name of freedom.

    Oh come on! We're not lying. We just forgot about those little stopovers. And likely only remembered because someone was going to spill the beans soon anyway.

    They were given couscous, if that makes you feel any better...

    It's an interesting question. Why didn't you lot raise a stink about this? But then, what would you or could you have done? Arrested the CIA agents running the flights? I admit, I would've loved to have seen George's face on the tv explaining why our people were being arrested for kidnapping and torture. And why it wasn't his fault, of course.

    I was surprised when I heard about this earlier today on some news show, but then I realized I really wasn't and was just more surprised someone mentioned it in MSM (never to be mentioned again because, as we can see from the lack of replies here, no one is surprised anymore).
