    Britain's role in targeted assassinations by the CIA

    According to this disturbing article, from the Observer today, a British technology company, and a US base in Cambridgeshire are linked to what appears to me, to be an international law breaking scheme by the CIA of targeted assassinations carried out by "predator" drones:

    The Observer has discovered that the computer 'brains' of the unmanned Predators are made in Towcester, Northamptonshire, by Radstone Technology. The firm manufactures the computer boards that control the drones and enable the CIA to target top al-Qaeda suspects. Predators are controlled remotely by satellite and a joystick. When a target is identified, the Predators fire a Hellfire missile.
    Equally controversial is the disclosure that images taken by Predators as they fly across international airspace are beamed back to a top-secret US base at RAF Molesworth in Cambridgeshire. Staff at the American Joint Analysis Centre study the images and then decide what action to take.
