Ghost Air's Visit to Stockholm

"Ghost Air," the CIA Gulfstream that flew detainees around the world for interrogation, on occasion went to Sweeden. The Washington Post reports that the Swedish authorities have released their own report on the CIA's treatment of prisoners in this secret renditon program. This paragraph says it all:

"Should Swedish officers have taken those measures, I would have prosecuted them without hesitation for the misuse of public power and probably would have asked for a prison sentence," the investigator, Mats Melin, said in an interview. He said he could not charge the CIA operatives because he was authorized to investigate only Swedish government officials, but he did not rule out the possibility that other Swedish prosecutors could do so.
