"Massive and Systematic Violations of Human Rights"

Spiegel Online:
In his second report on so-called "extraordinary renditions" of terror suspects, Council of Europe special investigator Dick Marty writes that there is "enough evidence to state" that American secret prisons in Poland and Romania existed. The illegal deportation of suspects by CIA kidnapping teams in Europe amounts to a "massive and systematic violations of human rights," the report states.

Marty, who conducted the investigation on behalf of the Council of Europe, accuses the CIA of having committing a series illegal acts: "We believe we have shown that the CIA committed a whole series of illegal acts in Europe by abducting individuals, detaining them in secret locations and subjecting them to interrogation techniques tantamount to torture."
The Bush Administration are war criminals. Period.
