Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The authors of "Off the Record" acknowledge that all 39 detainees may not still be in U.S. custody, and some may have been transferred to the control of other countries. One such country is Libya, which now plays a bigger role in U.S. counterterrorism operations than was previously known.

Well, the US has also used Syria for extraordinary renditions, while at the same time making the usual noises about democracy and Lebanon and sponsorship of terrorism.

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

I just want to make sure everyone's aware that extraordinary renditions and CIA black sites are two different things...?  I don't doubt that prisoners have been rendered to Libya, but I do doubt that the CIA is running its own prison facility there.
