Canary Islands Also Seeking CIA Flight Information

"A dispute over alleged CIA use of Spain as a base for transporting Islamic terror suspects spread Wednesday to the Canary Islands," according to EiTB4, a Basque news site. The local government there has asked Madrid to explain newspaper reports that CIA planes landed five times on the island of Tenerife last spring.

The Spanish archipelago off West Africa thus joins the island of Mallorca in the Mediterranean in being tied into the CIA story.

"We never got an answer back, or just a vague answer that the government had no evidence. Now we want to ask again for those explanations," Miguel Becerra, a spokesman for the Canary Islands government, said in a telephone interview.

Way cool story - maybe Agent Woodward could squeeze a few words out of Bill Casey on it.

Just like that pink bunny -- just keep going, and going, and going, and going, etc.

Could it get any worse?

My goodness I can't wait until 2008 after Bush leaves office, if only just for this "Everything that was in the dark shalt soon come to light".

Long gone will be the reporter protecing his source by-line. The walls of the white house will echo in chorus!

The resembles between Miller and Woodward and their close relationship with their Editors are eerie let alone striking at best.

I give Woodward two weeks and then thats when he will toss and turn at nites saying why? why? why?

Well, I figured like my Dad did when he turned 55 - - mid-life crisis for a man is most embarassing at best!
