The BBC says:

The government has backed a police investigation that found no evidence the CIA had used UK airports to transport terrorism suspects illegally.

Ministers said the 18-month inquiry into "extraordinary rendition" tallied with their research into the issue.

Human rights groups have labelled the police report a whitewash, claiming 210 flights had been in the UK since 2001.

What a surprise. The government, which has made an art out of sucking up to the Americans, says the Americans have never used UK airports for any of their well-documented illegal activities. Nobody will believe the government.
