The full extent of European collusion with the CIA during operations to abduct terrorism suspects and fly them to countries where they may be tortured is laid bare today by the continent's most authoritative human rights body.So there we have it. The US and several European nations have conspired together in a massive violation of everything that Western civilisation holds sacred. Only the wingnuts at the back of the class will fail to realise that the concepts of the universality of humanity, due process, habeas corpus, innocent until proven guilty in a court of law and an abhorrence for torture are basic building blocks of everything we are supposed to be defending from those who "hate our freedoms". They are, in fact, the very freedoms that we are told the enemy hate so much. To simply sideline them then lie about it - no matter the cause - makes a mockery of the War on Terror and makes our elected leaders into lying criminals who should be held accountable at a Nuremberg style international trial not just some local nation-specific impeachment.
Sorry if that sounds harsh, but it is truly how I feel.
