CIA used Greenland to transport terrorist detainees?

Thanks to Dave H. from for this find:

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) -- Denmark will investigate claims that the CIA secretly used an airport on the Nordic country's remote Arctic territory of Greenland to transport prisoners in the U.S. war on terror, the prime minister said Thursday.

Denmark, like many other European countries, began investigating reports in 2005 that the U.S. intelligence agency quietly touched down on their territory as part of the CIA's so-called "extraordinary rendition" program.

Human rights groups have criticized the practice, in which suspects are transported for interrogation to countries outside the U.S. for interrogation.

Hmm. You know, when I suggested last month that the US use Thule AFB in Northwestern Greenland for an alternative to Gitmo, I was kinda sorta saying that tongue-in-cheek. I mean, I think it's a heckuva idea, but I know nobody took me seriously. Or did they?

Anyway, the Danes all have their Europanties in a bunch over this:

A Danish TV documentary broadcast Wednesday by the DR1 TV network claimed that prisoner flights not only used mainland Denmark's airports and airspace but also touched down on Greenland, a semiautonomous Danish territory between Europe and North America.

"In the light of the new information, we will be looking into what happened and if need be, we will ask the Americans for explanations," Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen said.

He said Denmark has previously informed the United States that any unauthorized use of its airspace was "unacceptable."

Denmark's head wuss, Anders Fagh Rasmussen

Hey we landed in GREENLAND.


Look, just because you pussies can't control your own Muslims, don't be pissing and moaning because we used your dirty block of ice to help detain some Islamotards. Perhaps what we should have done instead, was drop them off there.

Anyway, you got a problem with our unauthorized use of Greenland? Why don't you defend that glacier, then? IT'S A BLOCK OF ****ING ICE YOU MORONS!

Thanks again to Dave H. for giving me something to rant about tonight...the next time you are in San Diego, I owe you a fish taco or an In-N-Out Burger...
