Dermot Ahern has today again denied that Shannon is being used by the CIA for its toture rendition flights.
War is hell, but when its done with complete disregard for international bodies like the UN, and regularly in breach of international law such as the 'enemy combatant holding camp' in Guantanamo, its a farce, especially considering the supposed values of freedom and liberty its supposedly being waged for.
If Dermot Ahern is serious about democracy and accountability, there needs to be regular inspections of the US planes landing at Shannon.

The first was with Irish Foreign Affairs Minister Dermot Ahern[subs req] who seemed somewhat unprepared for the questioning on the Irish government’s approach to resolving the issue of policing.
Mr Ahern makes clear “the policing issue wouldn’t be a pre-condition” for a November deal, before recalling that both parties appeared content to put the issue “in the middle distance” when negotiating around the “Comprehensive Agreement” proposals in autumn 2004.
The wriggle room, if it exists, is in Dermot Ahern’s reference to “an understanding that there is a move toward full acceptance”.

On his recent visit to the United States the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Dermot Ahern, stated that he had sought and was given assurances that neither Shannon Airport nor any other airport was being used or had been used by the CIA as a hub in transferring prisoners for “rendition” to third countries.
The article quotes a senior State Department official, who requested anonymity because he was relating a private conversation, as saying that Rice pointedly did not give the assurance personally to Ahern, because her message was “You’ve gotten those assurances from the ambassador [to Ireland].
This is in complete contradiction to what Dermot Ahern has publicly claimed and runs contrary to the assurances given by the US administration.
