Row over CIA ‘torture’ flights engulfs Blair

Tony Blair and Jack Straw, the Foreign Secretary, were under pressure last night to refute convincingly claims that Britain has been complicit in alleged use of CIA planes to take suspected terrorists for torture in secret camps abroad.

They can’t refute it.  It’s true. Plus, like Bush, Blair has lied so often (and so ineptly) that fewer and fewer trust him to tell the truth.
