Let us be honest folks, there is real bad mojo in the works when the Czech decide that they really do not want to put up a secret CIA torture facility in the Kastle.

President George W. Bush threatened to veto the entire defense spending bill over McCain's amendment. More recently, the White House offered to go along if Central Intelligence Agency agents working overseas were exempt from any restrictions. The CIA is holding accused terrorists at secret prisons in Eastern Europe, The Washington Post reported Nov. 2.
[ cf bloomberg ]

or were we suppose to back the high weirdness factor of:
Vice President Dick Cheney made an unusual personal appeal to Republican senators this week to allow CIA exemptions to a proposed ban on the torture of terror suspects in U.S. custody, according to participants in a closed-door session.
[ cf Pravda Pravda - not those wankers on the Hudson ]

Now why exactly, after admitting that he outed a CIA operative is Karl Rove still CONUS, and hasn't been rendered into one of the places where his Friends Dick and George think that 'terrorists' should go?????
