Oops, UK Admits Role In Renditions To Afghanistan

They fibbed:

The UK has repeatedly denied any involvement in the US program of extraordinary rendition, where illegally detained terrorism suspects are flown in secret to countries where they could face torture.

But now it says two men detained in Iraq in 2004 were transferred to US custody and were then transported to Afghanistan, where they remain.

The British Government says it has been reassured that they have been treated humanely.[Of course they were..ed]

In the House of Commons, the Defence Minister apologised for past incorrect answers given to MPs.

Muslim outrage to follow in 5...4...3...2....
