This week An Phoblacht features a number of stories highlighting the past and present role of the British government in gross abuses of human rights in Ireland and across the globe. The week has also seen confirmation in Washington of the role of the CIA in torturing prisoners. In their wars in Iraq and Afhganistan the British and US administrations used torture extensively, including the kidnapping of prisoners through so-called 'extraordinary rendition'. They were facilitated in this by a spineless Irish government which allowed US military aircraft to use Shannon Airport as a staging post, refusing all calls for such flights to be inspected in case they were carrying prisoners for torture.
