The Swedish government knew that CIA planes were carrying prisoners on their way to secret detention centers where they were to be interrogated. Swedish defense forces conducted secret surveillance operations in 2005 that monitored American planes at Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport. “The assignment to carry out this operation came from the Defense Ministry to the defense forces” according to sources. They were following up on information that the CIA was using so-called rendition flights to force people out of the USA against their will. Swedish army forces confirmed the accuracy of these reports.
Swedish army sources say they inspected the planes but would not comment beyond that comment. The planes undoubtedly contained men in chains who were obviously not passengers on a plane. The American nation must have an investigation into the entire process of torture to redeem its honor as a society.
