By the way, if you’re hearing that Obama has caved by allowing the CIA to continue their policy of extraordinary rendition, don’t believe it ... yet. Apparently, it was an LAT article that has some in a tizzy, but hilzoy calms the storm:
What is clear, however, is that Obama’s executive order prohibits sending people off to other countries where there are substantial grounds to think that they will be tortured, and commits his administration not just to hoping that this will not happen, but to trying to figure out how to keep it from happening. I will continue to watch what the Obama administration does. If they backtrack on their commitment not to engage in extraordinary rendition, I will call them on it. But I don’t think that this article provides evidence that they will.
