Apparently CIA has used danish airspace to transport terrorists around the world. Well they can't do it anymore... or thats what the danish government says anyway


I found this story on Danish Radio which is one of Denmarks national tv/radio stations.

The story is on danish, but I have tried to translate it here:




CIA can't use danish Airspace
The American intelligence service CIA cannot use danish airspace when they transport suspected terrorist around the world.

Denmark has made it clear to USA, says danish foreign minister Per Sig Møller.

That happens after it has made clear that CIA several times since 2001, apparently in secret had used danish airspace in connection with transport of suspected terrorists.

It is against international conventions.

24 secret prisons around the world.
The information around the secret flights came in May when transport minister Flemming Hansen confirmed that a series of civilian aircrafts, that is put in connection with the intelligence service has, had flown in danish airspace.

The transport minister does say that Denmark knew the flight planes, but that the government did not know who was on board in the planes or what purpose they had when they reached the end destinations .

CIA is believed to have 24 secret prisons around the world.

Maybe its a principals thing, a nation trying to dissacociate itself from flights that may well lead to the torture of the people involved.

I agree. By stating that the CIA can not fly through Danish Air Space, the Danish government is sending a clear message that they believe the flights are being used to carry out missions that may (or may not be) be illegal under international law.

I doubt that they would paint CIA on the sides of the jets.

How could you tell if it was a CIA flight or not?
