Spider Dick

Europeans 'assisted CIA renditions'

.......What do you find in a report's conclusion when you have NO evidence to show your conclusion?

Well if you are an "uber-socialist-liberal" like Switzerland's "Dick" Marty, you give the Dan Rather conclusion.

Fake but accurate.

It's no secret that Dick has had the bone for the US for a long time, but his "findings" borders on hysterical.

"PARIS - Fourteen European nations colluded with U.S. intelligence in a “spider’s web” of secret flights and detention centers that violated international human rights law, the head of an investigation into alleged CIA clandestine prisons said Wednesday.

Swiss Senator Dick Marty said the nations aided the movement of 17 detainees who said they had been abducted by U.S. agents and secretly transferred to detention centers around the world. Some said they were transferred to the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and others to alleged secret facilities in countries including Poland, Romania, Egypt and Jordan. Some said they were mistreated or tortured.

I have chosen to adopt the metaphor of a global spider’s web, a web that has been spun out incrementally over several years using tactics and techniques that had to be developed in response to new threats of war,” Marty said."

Wow! Sounds like Dick has 'em!


"Marty provided no direct evidence but charged that most European governments “did not seem particularly eager to establish” the facts. “Even if proof, in the classical meaning of the term, is not as yet available, a number of coherent and converging elements indicate that such secret detention centers did indeed exist in Europe,” he wrote, saying this warranted further investigation."

So .....Dick has squat.

Further according to this account in Forbes, we get some insight into Dicks anal-ysis.

"Marty analyzed a flight pattern of a plane with tail number N313P. He said the plane arrived in Timisoara from Kabul, Afghanistan, on the night of Jan. 25, 2004, after having transported Khaled El-Masri, a German who said he had been abducted by foreign intelligence agents in Macedonia, to the Afghan capital. El-Masri claims he was imprisoned for five months and tortured there.

Marty said the plane with the crew that accompanied El-Masri stayed in Timisoara for 72 minutes before leaving for Palma de Mallorca in the Mediterranean Sea.

"Having eliminated other explanations - including that of a simple logistics flight - the most likely hypothesis of the purpose of this flight was to transport one or several detainees from Kabul to Romania," Marty said in the report without elaborating"

No, I'll elaborate for Dick.

Dick, you're an idiot and God knows the world is full idiots like you. Fact is that you don't have any evidence, but you are throwing up hypotheticals and assumptions as fact. Forget that the EU found absolutely NO evidence of CIA prisons .

Seems Dick wasn't at all satisfied with that his own interim report, back in January and growing frustrated, and in true liberal fashion throws out the "accusation is the proof" crap that liberals are known for.

Say goodnight Dick.
