EU's CIA rendition report: forget about the US-EU agreement?

Selling bad wine with a new label: an EU draft report 'condemns' the kidnappings by the CIA and also 'blasted' most European countries for concealing and accepting the practice of the use by the US junta's CIA for the transportation and illegal detention and torture of human beings in secret prisons in the US Gulag.*
22 JANUARY 2003: SECRETLY AGREEING TO THIS FOUR YEARS AGO, ALL REFERENCES WERE DELETED FROM THE US/EU RECORD BEFORE PUBLISHING. SO WE WOULDN'T KNOW...

by Henk Ruyssenaars

FPF - Brussels - Nov. 30th - 2006 - From you, reading this on Internet of course, it's expected that you nowhere in the mainstream media can read the following. Expected of you is too that you completely have forgotten what was written and read earlier about the European Union and it's vile collaboration with the US war machine. The attention span for today concerns an in Brussels published draft [to be diluted] of a European Parliament report. The report condemns 'extraordinary rendition' and torture as one of many illegal systematic instruments used by the US junta in the by them fomented fake 'War on Terrorism'. The manager of the European Union, the by the London warlords named - not chosen by the EU - consigliere Peter Mandelsohn, is said not to be happy about the (limited) publicity.

Presented at EU headquarters in Brussels by Italian MEP Giovanni Claudio Fava, the report condemns the 'acceptance and concealing of the practice, on several occasions by the secret services and governmental authorities of most European countries'. In reality it - on the surface - condemns the unlimited cooperation of all EU state's so called 'leaders' with their CIA trained secret services and 'fellow travelers' in politics and the military - with the illegal rendition and torture methods of the US junta's war machine.

Especially the EU politician's treacherous collaboration resulting in - according to the EU commission (so it must be much worse) - at least 1245 (twelve-hundred-forty-five) inhuman and illegal CIA rendition flights all over and in Europe in the past years. To and from illegal and kept secret 'Gestapo' prisons in the US junta's Gulag. - [see Amnesty International -  http://tinyurl.com/t9kth]

BREACHING ALL CONVENTIONS GUARDING HUMAN RIGHTS ANYWHERE.

Like many other US junta colonies, The Netherlands is strangely enough not mentioned, even if it for more than 100% (hundred percent) always has collaborated with the US/Israeli junta. (Maybe that's why?) The creatures managing Holland keep breaching and trampling on all and every human value and convention guarding human rights anywhere. Including those of the 16 million Dutch people. However: plane spotters and journalists years ago already made pictures of the CIA planes on the main US/Dutch airport Schiphol close to Amsterdam. Pictures of which even some were published in Holland, but of course the torture flights were denied by the warmongering mafia of 'managers' of the country via their malignant mouthpieces. And certainly denied too, by mayor Job Cohen of Amsterdam and his clan. - [Schiphol rendition -  http://tinyurl.com/y57kx7]

US SECRETARY OF STATE COLIN POWELL: EU LEADERS ARE LYING

You are also supposed to have forgotten that former US 'secretary of state' Colin Powell in an interview* with his BBC buddy David Frost (Dec. 18, 2005) accused all European leaders of lying: 'because they all perfectly well knew about the rendition flights, and what the US junta illegally was up to. "They just lie to the people and collaborate with the US." Powell implied. Which was - and is - according to reality true of course.

WHAT THE EU REPORT DOESN'T SAY, doesn't write about and we all 'must forget' in the war propaganda offensive, is the following:

On January 22, 2003, in the greek capital Athens, the European Union secretly allowed the United States to use transit facilities for their illegal CIA rendition flights on European soil to transport what the US junta called "criminals". This according to a previously unpublished document which appeared and was published last year (11/12/2005) by 'The Telegraph' in the UK.* The revelations by some media contradicted as usual the EU top's and it's parrot's denials (lies) that they knew nothing of illegal "rendition/torture" flights by the CIA.

But as was shown, the EU Quislings and other war criminals already in Athens - NEARLY FOUR YEARS AGO - agreed to give the US junta in it's War OF Terror access to all facilities, airports etc. in confidential talks during which the US junta's fake 'war on terror' was discussed, the original minutes show. And nobody ever checked the US junta's criminals anywhere. No law was valid anymore, and the manager's 'EU top' cowardly agreed with the crimes. Making the EU guilty of war crimes and a target for rightful revenge and claims. They lie, and the people pay and die.

SO: ALL REFERENCES TO THE AGREEMENT WERE DELETED FROM THE RECORD BEFORE IT WAS PUBLISHED.

The minutes of the Athens meeting on January 22, 2003, were written by the then Greek presidency of the EU, the President of the European Council, Prime Minister C. Simitis (signing the 'Accession Treaty' in Athens on 16 April 2003) after the talks with a US delegation headed by a justice department official. EU officials confirmed that a full account was circulated to all member governments, and would have been sent to the Home Office. (UK)

The document, entitled 'New Transatlantic Agenda, EU-US meeting on Justice and Home Affairs', details the subjects discussed by the 31 people present. The agenda included the fight against terrorism, drug trafficking and extradition agreements.

According to the full version, "Both sides agreed on areas where co-operation could be improved [inter alia] the exchange of data between border management services, increased use of European transit facilities to support the return of criminal/ inadmissible aliens, co-ordination with regard to false documents training and improving the co-operation in removals."

BUT THIS SECTION, AND OTHERS REFERRING TO US POLICY, WERE DELETED - AS A "COURTESY" TO WASHINGTON, ACCORDING TO A SPOKESMAN FOR THE EU COUNCIL OF MINISTERS." - [END QUOTE]*

And of course 'out of courtesy' not a word was spoken about the EU collaboration and other crimes at the next 'EU-USA Summit' at the headquarters of the US junta, the White House on the 25th of June 2003. - [ http://www.eu2003.gr/en/cat/3/] - Nor during the following joint press conference of US 'president' George Bush, the Quisling-president of the European Council, the Greek Costas Simitis, and another infamous traitor who at that time was 'president' of the European Commission and now is playing his role as Italian Prime (Crime) Minister: Romano Prodi. His predecessing war criminal and mafiosi Berlusconi is not only mentally in bad shape, but now physically too: he became ill and many think that it's logical that even his heart refuses to work for him anymore.

At the US war machine's falsely labeled 'NATO meeting' during the past days in Latvia's capital Riga, Dutch Quisling and US junta's puppet at the NATO helm 'Jaap de Hoop Scheffer' (seen by thinking people as a spineless US junta slave and war criminal, which he is) was seen discussing with Bush and some of the collaborating EU 'leaders' like the EU's despicable foreign relations Xavier Solana, how to rephrase all their lies. Like now is done with this EU report, selling bad wine with a new label.

But it is without the 'memory hole' difficult to make disappear the EU country's complicity in all war crimes. The report lists Italy, UK, Germany, Sweden Austria, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Greece, Cyprus, Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Romania, and Poland as the countries which cooperated with the illegal CIA renditions and torture. And thus all responsible creatures in those countries, whatever they claim and from the top on down - are guilty too of war crimes and other crimes against humanity. Which they must be judged and punished for. But no capital punishment: we should never stoop as low as they are. They kill people for profit: turning our blood into their gold.

For example, the report condemns the active role by certain officials of the Italian military service* (with the CIA) in the abduction of Egyptian cleric Abu Omar, who had been granted asylum in Italy and who was abducted in Milan on February 17, 2003 and flown to Egypt. It expressed serious concern about the 170 stopovers made by CIA- operated aircraft at UK airports, which on many occasions came from or were bound for countries linked with extraordinary rendition, including torture.

The report expresses serious concern about the 336 stopovers made by CIA-operated aircraft at US/German airports that on many occasions came from or were bound for countries linked with extraordinary rendition and torture. It is regrettably a fact and known that German PM Angela Merkel with her clique is just a miserable pawn for the managers of Germany, deteriorating the EU's social fabric. Germany, and especially it's intelligence services like the BND, Bundes Nachrichrichten Dienst, for the past years has been an active part of the inhuman US junta's war machine and secretly fully cooperating with it.

EU Rapporteur Italian MEP Giovanni Claudio Fava told reporters that the during the 10-month long investigation the committee held 154 hearings, undertook seven missions abroad and also met with 20 victims of the CIA rendition. "We cannot leave this illegal system unanswered. We must make sure that this will not happen again," stressed the Italian lawmaker.

"THE WAR ON TERROR CANNOT BE FOUGHT IN THIS WAY. RENDITION AND TORTURE DO NOT WORK," SAID FAVA. HE'S RIGHT OF COURSE BUT LIKE MANY OTHERS THIS HYPOCRITE HAS KNOWN THE US/EU PRAXIS FOR 4 YEARS AT LEAST!

The report calls on European countries that have started their own investigations to conclude their work as soon as possible and make their inquiry public. (Don't make me laugh! - HR) The report urges European countries against whom allegations have been made and that have not undertaken any investigation to commence such proceedings as soon as possible. It also calls for the closure of Guantanamo prison and for European countries to accept the return of their citizens who are being held illegally by US authorities.

The report which will be discussed by the EP Committee in the next few days also presented working documents providing evidence of the companies linked to the CIA, the aircraft used by the CIA and the European countries in which CIA aircraft made stopovers." [ ]

So: the secret EU/US junta agreements made four years ago should be forgotten? Drowned like so much other honest information in the propaganda waves of the warmonger's mainstream media?

Anybody on earth thinking logically sees absolutely NO difference between the managers of the US or the EU and many other countries:

IT'S THE SAME MAFIA, THE SAME GROUP OF CREATURES MAKING WAR A PROFITABLE RACKET.

IT'S HOPED THAT THE US JUNTA'S 'PNAC REVOLUTION' EATS IT'S CHILDREN TOO.

AND FAST!
