Getting to the truth

Here's an interesting Associated Press report on reaction in Europe to Barack Obama's order to close the Guantanamo Bay detention centre and the secret CIA facilities; note the perspective from Ireland (and Joe Costello of the Labour Party) as to whether the move will dislodge any secrets about Shannon's role in the rendition-detention regime. It probably seems like a low priority now with the economic crisis in Ireland, but the alternative candidates for the Fianna Fail leadership have stints on their CVs as Minister for Foreign Affairs, which is where the three monkeys approach to Shannon dominates.
