Milwaukee Makes the National News

But not for the reason you expected.

Seems that good old X42 was the President who initiated "renditioning" with the CIA--the practice of taking terrorists to allied countries for questioning. This fact has yet to be reported by the NYSlimes or the WaPost...

And the individual who claims credit for inventing the program (in 1995) tells us:

"In Cairo, people are not treated like they are in Milwaukee. The Clinton administration asked us if we believed that the prisoners were being treated in accordance with local law. And we answered, yes, we're fairly sure."

But is this good or not good? Perhaps Mike McCann should think about 'renditions' for street-gang terrorists. Might have just the right effect.
