Europeans allowed secret flights across their air space to Guantánamo

Stephen Grey, author of Ghost Planes, recently released flight logs showing that at least five European countries (Turkey, Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal) allowed secret rendition flights through their airspace.

Thomas Hammarberg, the Council of Europe's commissioner for human rights, said: "What happened at Guantanamo was torture and it is illegal to provide facilities or anything to make this torture possible. Under the law, European governments should have intervened and should not have given permission to let these flights happen."

So when will these countries come foreward and help the men that have been illegally prisoned these six years because of their complicity?

European Countries who allowed the transfer of prisoners to be tortured or helped in any ways should be ashamed of themselves.
