What's so great about the EU?

That it actually stands for something. That’s what. So it is good to see that it is going after the secret CIA prisons and treating them as exactly what they are. As the BBC News report states:

[The EU Justice Commissioner] said a suspension of voting rights would be justified if any country is found to have breached the bloc's founding principles of human rights, democracy and the rule of law.

Rogue states like the US must be made aware that international opinion will not accept their actions and that there are consequence to their actions. Similarly for any other government that co-operates with their activities. As such, I hope that the EU manages to find the prisons and whoever is responsible for their existence ends up spending very public time in prison.

A cowboy might say “There’s them that talk and then there’s them that act.” And when it comes to human rights the US has long been the biggest blowhard I ever did see.
