Quid Pro Quo

America to Germany: We'll give you access to one of your citizens who's been detained on account of being an Al-Qaeda suspect. All you have to do is help mute EU opposition to extraordinary rendition, the program used by the CIA to send terrorist suspects to countries that torture, a program whose tentacles reach the Middle East (including avowed enemies, like Syria), North Africa, Guantanamo Bay and, yes, Western Europe.
Germany to America: Ok.
