Rendition to Morocco

The Moroccan Human Rights Association is asking the government to come clean about rendition in the kingdom. The BBC reports:

Abdelhamid Amine, who is their chairman, said both the Moroccan government and Washington had to come clean.

“The United States, which declares itself a democratic country, must recognise that these so-called black sites exist and that torture goes on there,” he said.

“The United States justifies all this in the name of its war against terrorism. But we, as the defenders of human rights in Morocco, cannot accept that in the name of the war on terror you can also violate human rights or practice the terrorism of torture.”

Predictably, the Minister of Justice denies the existence of any CIA prisons, etc.
