Tony Blair says he has no memory of the 2004 rendition case involving Abdel Hakim Belhaj. The former prime minister said Britain had always opposed rendition and "absolutely adhered to that position".
OK, as I said before that sounds like a lie and a guilty verdict.If he and Straw were adamant with their opposition, then he would hardly forget it if he was told about any extraordinary rendition, and if Straw was opposed to it, he would hardly have kept quiet about it.
Mr Blair told the BBC that the security services did an "important, dangerous job" and generally deserved the full support of the country. Which we all iknow already and we don't need to hear it from him. An what we really want to know was which Secretary of State authorised the extraordinary rendition of Mr Belhaj.
