EU Nations ‘Knew About CIA Jails’

BBC:

Many EU nations were aware that the CIA used their territory for the transfer or detention of terror suspects, a draft European parliament report says.

The report follows months of investigation by a special committee of MEPs led by an Italian, Claudio Fava.

“Many governments co-operated passively or actively (with the CIA),” said Mr Fava, quoted by AFP news agency.

He accused top EU officials including foreign policy chief Javier Solana of failing to give full details to MEPs.

The report echoed allegations made in June by the Council of Europe - Europe’s leading human rights watchdog - that European states were complicit in illegal CIA operations as part of the US-led “war on terror”.

There should be a way to delete stupid posts like the one I just posted.  Obviously it is not totally failed as this site is an example of a social democrat perspective.  It is just that the promise of social democracy was a better world and admittedly the world sucks —- in part due to the sell out of the social democrats and worse the extreme turn to the right as exemplified by the neoCons and the writers for Dissent Magazine. (for example).

Javier Solana fell in love to “blow job” policy of Condi Rice who’s an expert of this job when manipulating King George’s foreign policy with EU.

Javier Solana is a totally corrupt individual as are the majority of ex-social democrats in Europe and everywhere else. Social Democracy/Liberalism is a totally failed ideology
