27 May 2013 - Investigators believe they have found "conclusive" new proof that CIA-linked planes landed regularly in Scottish airports as part of the "extraordinary rendition" programme.
The three airports which it is claimed were used as part of the "war on terror" are Aberdeen, Inverness and Wick.
A study, conducted by two academics at UK universities, found that 13 flights to these airports may have been involved in the US security service's controversial "extraordinary rendition" programme.
Extraordinary rendition was used by the US Government in the years after the September 11 attacks.
It involved the secret kidnapping, detention and transfer of terror suspects to other countries for interrogation and alleged torture. read more>>>
28 May 2013 - CIA planes linked to the controversial practice of “extraordinary rendition” landed at Leuchars and Dundee airports on multiple occasions, according to investigators.

The academic study also revealed flights landed at Leuchars — the only RAF base in Scotland highlighted in the research — and Dundee’s commercial airport.
North East Fife MP Sir Menzies Campbell has called for a full investigation to be held into the claims, with the unredacted results made public, while Dundee East MP Stewart Hosie promised to raise the matter with Foreign Secretary William Hague. read more>>>
