Bush-lovers' naivete knows no bounds
"Over-reaction to US-Ireland agreement
Much comment has been made regarding the agreement between the US and Ireland to facilitate extradition and associated procedures with a view to better fighting the War on Terror. Characterizations of the agreement as giving the CIA a free hand in Ireland, rampant on Irish blogs and beyond, are far off the mark. The facts of the matter are straightforward. The consent of the Irish government is needed to proceed with an investigation, as anyone who's read the document knows. It's right here. Skip to Article 7 if you're looking for the consent bit. The anti-American scare-stories of unchecked CIA agents operating without Irish consent have no basis in reality."
Scare-stories? I don't think so.
UPDATE: Dick O'Brien has more, as does Bernie Goldbach.
