Big change from the moron-Bush.
The Los Angeles Times reports the Obama administration has decided not to end the controversial policy of extraordinary rendition, which gives the CIA authority to abduct anyone throughout the world and secretly transfer them to another country illegally and for torture.
Current and former US intelligence officials said the rendition program is poised to play an expanded role in counterterrorism efforts.
One Obama administration official said, “Obviously you need to preserve some tools. You still have to go after the bad guys.
Most of the "bad guys" are in Israel building a wall around themselves so they should be easy to pick up.
” The European Parliament has condemned renditions as an "illegal instrument used by the United States.”
