US ‘ignored’ UK rendition protest July 25, 2007

Posted by Some Muslim in Iraq War, News Commentry, USA, War on Terror.

The BBC reports:

British concerns appear to have had no “material affect” on US actions in its “war on terror”, the UK’s intelligence and security committee has said.

The committee, which reports to the prime minister, was probing possible UK involvement in rendition flights.

Does this tell us anything new? It’s no secret that the US doesn’t particular care what the UK thinks. Rumsfeld was prepared to go to war with Iraq without Blair’s support

As Labour MP, Graham Allen said:

“He’s made it very clear that the US can and will go to war without the UK. Our participation is not necessary,”

Why the UK continues to maintain this so called special relationship between itself and the US is anyone’s guess.
