Cover-up in Germany?

"A government report cleared the German secret service of charges that it helped the U.S. military during the Iraq war, but opposition leaders counter a giant cover-up is in effect.

[...]

The report is provided entirely by the government; most of its contents stay classified and the opposition is not able to talk about the findings or hear witnesses. This explains why the opposition, mainly the Left Party and the Greens, feel betrayed.

One lawmaker from the Left Party stormed out of the meeting, arguing he felt the government was knowingly misleading the panel."

Read more about the report, which also deals with possible German government complicity in the abduction of Khaled el-Masri, here.

Craig Murray's blog is always worth a visit. Currently he's posting a lot about the heinous practice of rendition, and helping to expose the Blair government's participation in it.

Hi Jean

Perhaps you remember me--from "Detente"? I have something of interest to tell you, if you'll get in touch. My e-mail is sshenfield@verizon.net
