European Parliament Issues Report on Renditions

Giovanni Claudio Fava, with the European Parliament, has issued his report relative to allegations surrounding the Central Intelligence Agency's (CIA) supposed "extraordinary rendition" program. According to the report, an estimated 1,000 "undeclared" flights were taken over Europe since 2001, many of which following suspect routes (inconsistent with patterns sufficient merely for refueling). This report comes following 3 months of testimony and investigation. The Council of Europe issued a similar investigatory report here.
