Torture Plane Redux

Next stop, Iceland.

So the CIA's torture planes are back in the news, and this time the Canadian government may or may not be implicated in the shenanigans. It is far from "news" that the CIA uses a shadowy network of civilian planes to transport hapless detainees to sites where they can be conveniently run through the mill away from prying eyes and legal niceties. But it is pretty huge news if the jerks in Ottawa are in on this. That is still up in the air - the only way we might get answers is if one of the opposition parties has the balls to bring it up during the election. The squirming at that juncture would be delicious to watch.
