Report Alleges Secret CIA Network Of Jails

The Spanish National Court received a report alleging an airport on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca was part of a secret network of jails used by the CIA for the covert transfers of terror suspects.

The U.S. government has been criticized by human rights groups for practicing "extraordinary rendition" - sending suspected terrorists to foreign countries, where they are detained, interrogated and subjected to possible ill-treatment. By conducting interrogations off US soil, certain prisoner rights do not have to be enforced.

This doesn't sound like a bad idea at all. If we are to defend our country against terrorist we can't have the likes of Kennedy, Boxer, Kerry, or any other bleeding heart liberal saying we have to serve milk and cookies to known murderers and give them a hug to burp them. If the CIA needs to get these guys alone, so be it. It's better than what the terrorist did to caputured Europeans in Iraq--slicing their heads off and video taping it for the world to see. There are times when you fight fire with fire and leave your humanity back in camp. This is the way of all wars, not just this one. We'd be better off listening to the ones on the scene than giving an ear to those at home with their feet propped up drinking martinis in front of the fireplace and bellyaching that the world just doesn't suit them today. It must be nice to be a rich liberal jackass.
