Of course we’d never mislead a close friend and ally…

…said the oily US spokesman on R4 tonight, as it turns out the US has been telling us porkies about torture flights. Though I doubt our govt asked too hard, since it enabled them to make denials when it was all becoming rather embarassing.

The UK govt is still insisting that the US lied to us in good faith. Understandable, I suppose: when you’re shipping so many people around, its just so hard to keep track.
