I'm Leaving on a Jet Plane, Don't Know When I'll Be Tortured Again

The AFP picks up a story from the Guardian UK (which makes me yearn for the days of bands that had the UK appendage, like Charlatans UK, but then I stop longing when I remember the music of such bands):

The United States was facing mounting embarrassment as allegations continued to emerge of a shadowy network of both secret prison camps and CIA "torture flights" carrying undeclared detainees through European and other countries.

In the latest such report the British newspaper The Guardian said Thursday it had seen navigation logs showing that more than 300 flights operated by the US Central Intelligence Agency had passed through European airports, as part of a network that could be involved in the clandestine detention and possible torture of terrorism suspects.

Or maybe CIA agents just like going on junkets to Ibiza. (So, how does one get a computer to slur that z?) The good news, though, is even while countries pull out of Iraq ahead of us because they are both smarter and tired of getting bullied around, the article informs us of the following:

The paper also said that the CIA had used planes to send more than 100 suspects to the hidden global internment network, not including prisoners picked up from Iraq.

The world is still on our side, just part of the hidden global internment network (not to be confused with the Christian Broadcasting Network, which isn't hidden enough, although watching it is torture). The real question is where did the 100 suspects come from if not Iraq? And who is that knocking on the door as I type...
