Source: The Associated Press

Published: December 5, 2008

COPENHAGEN, Denmark: ... A Danish television reporter asked Rice to comment on a Danish government commission's report that was unable to conclude whether Danish air space was used in the secretive rendition program.

"We have respected Danish sovereignty and will continue to do so, and I have given to the (Danish) foreign minister a guarantee, assurances how we will deal with these issues in the future," Rice said.

When the reporter asked whether that meant there had been no CIA rendition flights through Danish air space, Rice sidestepped the question.

"I have given a commitment to the foreign minister about the future, and I have said that we will respect Danish sovereignty," she said ...

9. But then again, they could also get her to admit to being
Henry Kissinger's long lost daughter by water boarding her.

8. So, what is the story within Denmark - did the people know it and sanction it and
not there are misgivings? Was it a secret in Denmark?

What routes involved Denmark? Is there a prison in an Eastern Europe country that is more north than we thought - Latvia? Or is this just the shortest route between Guantanamo and Romania? or Diego Garcia?

We must remember this - to share with others who accept all the lies ...

Coalition partner didn't just mean sending their own soldiers to Iraq.

We will start learning what the substitutes are (and were if the program was ended for a particular country).

The worst of the substitutes were the prisons and contracts for torturers or torture assistants and torture complicit administrators of the prisons.

Other contributions could have been benign - orange juice - just for illustration purposes.

Some allowed rendition. There have been stories that Ireland allowed the fuel stops.

The stories will come out.
