Jyllands-Posten reports that Danish opposition political figures' calls for investigation into the flights are falling on deaf ears within the government:
The number of landings in Denmark underscored the need for an investigation, said Morten Østergaard of the opposition's Social Liberal party. [As if being a Socialist wasn't enough? --ed.] He noted that the US has admitted that it has used secret prisons around the world to house terror suspects.How, exactly, do these idiots expect the US to transport these scumbags? Book a seat on a regular commercial flight? Oh, wait, that's right. We're not supposed to capture and detain them at all. Which I suppose leaves just one battlefield option: take no prisoners and bayonet the wounded.
'The government initially refused to broach this subject and called it just a bunch of rumours,' said Østergaard. 'That's why it's noteworthy that the government continues to refuse to investigate the matter. When Americans admit it, why can't the Danish government also do so?' [Because they don't have the New York Times to answer to perhaps? --ed.]
Østergaard called for a commission that would investigate the accusations of secret flights, but PM Anders Fogh Rasmussen stated that the government has no plans to initiate an investigation.
