Rendition flights still using UK

The CIA seems to be still using British territories to fly terror suspects to secret prisons in countries notorious for using torture, The Mail on Sunday revealed on Sunday, June 10. Quoting eyewitness, the British paper said a plane linked to the CIA’s infamous rendition program landed at the Royal Air Force station of Mildenhall in the county of Suffolk last week. It substantiated the report with a photo taken by spotters of the CASA-212 Aviocar plane as it prepared to land. Flights records show that the plane was given landing rights by the Ministry of Defense although there was no record of passenger lists or details of the flight purpose. No sooner had the plane landed in the British military base than it was secured by four US security men armed with M16 assault rifles, according to eyewitnesses.
