Government supports police shock

I watched the BBC news last night where the lead story was the rejection by Liberty and the Liberal Democrats of police claims that there is no evidence of extraordinary rendition (kidnapping and torture) flights passing through Britain. Perhaps the BBC is discovering a bit of backbone.

This morning the BBC reports "Police supported over CIA inquiry". It would be something as a surprise if the government were ungrateful enough to reject the finding they wanted the police to come up with. Meanwhile, the BBC reports the Liberal Democrats as saying that the joint intelligence and security committee is better placed than the police to find out what is going on, on the basis that the spooks will have agreed it and will tell the committee. Seems a bit naive, but we'll see.
