New Information on CIA Flights Spells Trouble for Condi
This is going to place Condoleezza Rice in a very difficult position when she travels to Europe next week, especially considering that her job there is to do damage control by getting the Europeans to shut up about the prisons. But this also spells potential trouble for the German government in light of EU Justice and Home Affairs Commissioner, Franco Frattini's threats of last week.
The plot thickens...
I hadnt seen this news about the CIA flight lists. I wonder if the Euro will back down under pressure from Condi and the neocons or will they stand up and fight this, particularly as its a violation of international law (not to mention the law of their own countries)? Also, since the war (and the US) is so unpopular in most of those countries I would think their own electorates would put pressure on them to get answers from the US.
I hope they dont back down.
Great blog btw
