Extraordinary Jack Straw

So Jack Straw has been told by Condoleeza Rice that no-one has been the subject of "extraordinary rendition" via the UK, the USA have not asked us to permit such a flight and he cannot find any evidence of such flights. That's OK then.

I suppose it is too much to expect any explanation for the 400 odd CIA flights using UK airspace and airports. And just a co-incidence that despite the admission by White House spokeman Scott McClennen that extraordinary rendition happens, it didn't happen here in the UK.

It would also seem that our leaders think that sometimes torture is permissable if it serves a greater good. How twisted our standards of law and justice have become. Once an ideal is tarnished, it can never be made good again.
