"The CIA tried to persuade Germany to silence EU protests about the human rights record of one of America's key allies in its clandestine torture flights programme, the Guardian can reveal.
According to a secret intelligence report, the CIA offered to let Germany have access to one of its citizens, an al-Qaida suspect being held in a Moroccan cell. But the US secret agents demanded that in return, Berlin should cooperate and "avert pressure from EU" over human rights abuses in the north African country."

Read about this in the Sunday Times. So last week tbh ;) Like Rob says though, not surprising  - that the US are doing this or that the UK publicly disapproves while actually secretly endorses this sort of thing. Allegedly.
