Yo Ho! Rendition on the High Seas, Matey!
Who says CIA proprietary airline pilots have to have all the fun? The Guardian in the UK claimed June 2 that the US Navy, in conjunction with CIA and Special Operations groups, is sponsoring classified rendition missions aboard such ships as USS Ashland, USS Bataan, and USS Peleliu (pictured). Kudos to the human-rights organization Reprieve for deciphering the details of the secret prison ships. Isn't it great how our fine nation can deny human rights on the land, in the sea, and in the air? Granted, no prison camps in space yet, but we're working on the problem.
