Another Condi Lie for the Record

German Sues Over Abduction Said to Be at Hands of C.I.A. - New York Times: "Mr. Romero of the A.C.L.U. said the lawsuit was an attempt to counter the 'culture of impunity' in the Bush administration for human rights violations and to force the C.I.A. to abandon practices in conflict with American values. The organization has obtained 77,000 pages of government documents on detention and interrogation under the Freedom of Information Act that have been the basis for thousands of news reports.

Mr. Romero took issue with a statement Ms. Rice made on Monday before leaving for Germany denying accusations of human rights violations and declaring that 'the United States does not transport, and has not transported, detainees from one country to another for the purpose of interrogation using torture.'

'Unfortunately, as our lawsuit shows today, those statements are patently false,' Mr. Romero said."
