Obama's Fresh Breath of Rendition

Freedom, it's in the air. Draw in a big breath of it, hold it. Keep holding it. Now exhale. You can't? Has the black cloth bag obstructed your mouth? Is the weight of your captor on your chest hampering your breathing?

President Barack Obama believes in freedom, the freedom to rendition. The TimesUK reported:

Under executive orders signed on January 22, the CIA appears to have preserved its authority to carry out renditions – by which hundreds of terrorist suspects have been abducted and transferred to prisons in countries with questionable human rights records such as Egypt, Morocco or Jordan.

Breath now, while you can.
