Newsvine: Court case lifts lid on secret post 9/11 flights
Irish "plane spotters" (like "train-spotting") watchers of commerce, wore "black shamrocks" on one Easter in protest of the "extraordinary rendition" assumed landed and flown through the Republic of Ireland presumably illegally. The bowl of shamrocks given to then President George W. Bush by the current Pope were green for St. Patrick’s Day according to the photo-op.
Amazing story, that almost went unnoticed, therefore supposed to be covert leads one to the conclusion that the Executive Branch under the current War Powers Act, which Republicans complain Democrats overuse while they’re are not in power and then in my opinion abuse, when they’re in office, should be reined in ("reined" right, as "unbridled" not reign?)
