The Times: Nato 'authorised secret CIA prisons in Europe' (June 8, 2007)
In his report today, Mr Marty claimed that after 9/11 the CIA set up a programme to "kill, capture and detain" so-called high value terror suspects. The collaboration of friendly foreign governments was critical to the secret detention programme.

The operation took place within the framework of Nato's security policy, after Nato and the United States reached a secret deal in 2001 allowing the CIA to run covert prisons in Europe, he claimed.

"The secret detention facilities in Europe were run directly and exclusively by the CIA," said the report.

I want heads to roll, I want the people at the NATO meeting that made this decision to be tried in The Hague, and I want some Atlanticist to write that log overdue diary about the benefits of NATO for Europe.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
