Is it ok with you that Obama may continue to allow Rendition?
Despite ordering the closure of Guantanamo and an end to harsh interrogation techniques, the new president has failed to call an end to secret abductions and questioning. ... The practice caused outrage at the EU, after it was revealed the CIA had used secret prisons in Romania and Poland and airports such as Prestwick in Scotland to conduct up to 1,200 rendition flights. The European Parliament called renditions "an illegal instrument used by the United States".
According to a detailed reading of the executive orders signed by Mr Obama on Jan 22, renditions have not been outlawed, with the new administration deciding it needs to retain some devices in Mr Bush's anti-terror arsenal amid continued threats to US national security.

The media will make Obama promoting Rendition and torture a GOOD THING. They love him. They hated Bush. Obama is the Golden Child in the eyes of the media and they follow him blindly. It's disgusting how one sided our media is. Grlygrlz, what I find interesting is that the article that you cite is from the UK. Just goes to show the in the US, they don't want to make mention of Obama and Bush having similarities
