Laura Rosen says 


Who you gonna believe? Atrios expresses my views on Rice "the US does not condone torture" in Europe. And please explain how Rice's utterances are compatable with what Germany, the US, and now everybody who reads the Washington Post knows about the case of Khaled Masri, an innocent German citizen who got snatched off a bus by the US, tortured, and detained for months for no reason other than his name is the same as someone else the US meant to do that to? And then the US had the chutzpah to ask the Germans to keep it quiet, please. The only thing protecting Rice from total official ridicule (public ridicule and outrage will be a certainty) in Europe is that the US' tactics are almost certainly no secret to the foreign ministers she is meeting with, and that there's almost certainly been some degree of complicity with the extraordinary renditions from European territory now being investigated. Anyhow, it's nice to see Rice doing her part for annual fundraising for Amnesty International just in time for the holidays. Update: Check out the new ad in support of the McCain anti-torture amendment from the Center for American Progress.
