Has rendition helped the US in its so-called war on terror? And how would Obama reconcile this policy with his rhetoric on human rights?

  • An Ex-CIA Officer Speaks Out: The Italian Job

    Sabrina De Sousa is one of nearly two-dozen CIA officers who was prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced by Italian courts in absentia in 2009 for the role she allegedly played in the rendition of a radical cleric named Abu Omar. It was the first and only criminal prosecution that has ever taken place related to the CIA's rendition program, which involved more than 100 suspected terrorists and the assistance of dozens of European countries. But De Sousa, a dual US and Portuguese citizen, said she had nothing to do with the cleric's abduction and has been wrongly accused. For the past decade, she has been on a global quest to clear her name. VICE News met up with De Sousa in Lisbon, Portugal--and other key figures connected to the case--for an exclusive interview about the steps she's now tak...

  • As Italy Sentences 23 CIA Agents in Rendition Case, Obama Refuses To Prosecute Over Torture

    DemocracyNow.org. - Italy's High Court has upheld the sentences of 23 CIA operatives convicted of kidnapping a Muslim cleric under the U.S. program of "extraordinary rendition." The cleric, Abu Omar, was seized from the streets of Milan in 2003 and taken to U.S. bases in Italy and Germany before being sent to Egypt, where he was tortured during a four-year imprisonment. The Americans were all convicted in absentia after the United States refused to hand them over. The ruling marks the final appeal in the first trial anywhere in the world involving the CIA's practice of rendering terror suspects to countries that allow torture. But back in 2008, then presidential candidate Barack Obama unequivocally denounced torture and extraordinary rendition. Well, according to our guest, four years afte...

U.S. agents accused the men — two of them Swedes, the other a longtime resident of Britain — of supporting al-Shabab, an Islamist militia in Somalia that Washington considers a terrorist group. Two months after their arrest, the prisoners were secretly indicted by a federal grand jury in New York, then clandestinely taken into custody by the FBI and flown to the United States to face trial.'* The rendition program- systematic clandestine illegal kidnappings of terrorism suspects - are exploding under President Obama, even thou...

The documents expose how the CIA rendered suspects to Libyan authorities knowing they would be tortured. One of the most prominent suspects rendered to Libya was an Islamic militant named Abdelhakim Belhaj, who is now the military commander for the Libyan rebels. At the time of his capture in 2004, Belhaj was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, a group that had ties to al-Qaeda.

Triangle of Anger" -- the film on extraordinary rendition Steve Clemons of The Washington Note (TWN) has spent the past few days in London meeting with British and Arab public officials, journalists, and intellectuals, and seeing the first screening of the new documentary on extraordinary rendition, "Triangle of Anger." As I reported yesterday, I was going to a screening in London of Yosri Fouda's 46-minute, made for Al Jazeera Channel (in Arabic), production on the topic of 'extraordinary rendition' of terror suspects to third countries for interrogation, and as the cases have turned out, frequent application of torture. Fouda and his project producer, Giles Trendle, have transformed the Arabic-language production into an English-language version, and the result is seriously provocative. The clip will run on Al Jazeera International, the new English language Arab satellite network. TWN has made arrangements with the management at Al Jazeera International to be the first blog to provide web-based access to the production. Details are still being worked out regarding whether the digital version will be based on TWN's servers, or Al Jazeera International's -- but as matters firm up, I will keep readers posted. "Triangle of Anger" is a must see for those worried about a global-war-on-terror practice whose mistaken application against innocents has undermined the American brand among many Muslims (as well as non-Muslims) around the world.

THINK KENT – INTERNATIONAL THINKERS | GLOBAL IMPACT The CIA’s Rendition, Detention and Interrogation (RDI) programme was established as part of the US-led ‘War on Terror’ for the apprehension and detention of terrorism suspects, in secret, so that they could be interrogated under torture. The Rendition Project, led by Professor Blakeley from the University of Kent, has provided the most comprehensive account to date of the fate and whereabouts of each of those detained and tortured within the RDI programme. This lecture explains how Professor Blakeley’s team compiled the largest public database of rendition flights by CIA aircraft, a database which is key to understanding how the global rendition system operated and evolved between 2001 and 2007. When triangulated with documentary evidence amassed by The Rendition Project team, this database has been crucial in providing evidence for litigation on behalf of victims at the European Court of Human Rights. ► SEARCH for a course at the University of Kent: http://www.kent.ac.uk/courses/?utm_source=YouTube&utm_medium=BlakeleySearch&utm_campaign=ThinkKent1516 ► Research at Kent: https://www.kent.ac.uk/research/?utm_source=YouTube&utm_medium=BlakeleyResearch&utm_campaign=ThinkKent1516 ► SUBSCRIBE for more Think Kent lectures: http://www.youtube.com/user/UniversityofKent?sub_confirmation=1 ABOUT PROFESSOR RUTH BLAKELEY Professor Blakeley’s research focuses on the use of state violence and state terrorism, particularly by liberal democratic states. She is behind The Rendition Project, which aims to bring together and analyse the huge amount of data that exists about rendition, secret detention and torture in the ‘War on Terror’. Described by the Guardian as ‘a groundbreaking research project which sheds unprecedented light on one of the most controversial secret operations of recent years’, the Rendition Project has produced the Rendition Flights Database and Interactive Map which enables users to navigate their own way through the global rendition system. Ruth is the author of State Terrorism and Neoliberalism: The North in the South (London: Routledge, 2009), and has published articles on state terrorism and torture in various academic journals. She acted as academic consultant to investigative journalist John Pilger for his documentary War on Democracy, screened in UK cinemas and on ITV1 during 2007. Ruth is interested in supervising PhD students in the fields of Human Rights, US foreign policy, Critical Security Studies and Critical Terrorism Studies. Currently, Ruth is the University of Kent's Aurora Champion for the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education’s programme for developing women leaders in Higher Education.

Sabrina De Sousa, a former CIA counterterrorism officer, is facing imminent extradition to Italy for her role in the unlawful rendition of a suspected terrorist, an operation she has long denied any involvement with. In 2003, a radical Egyptian cleric named Abu Omar was kidnapped off the streets of Milan in broad daylight, by CIA officers assisted by Italian intelligence. Omar was then flown to Egypt, where he says he was tortured. In 2009, Sabrina De Sousa and two dozen other American officials were convicted in absentia by an Italian court for their role in the rendition. Now facing a four-year prison term in Italy, De Sousa blames Hillary Clinton for failing to assist her back in 2012, when Clinton was serving as Secretary of State. De Sousa sent Clinton a plea for help, but she never received a reply. De Sousa has long argued that she had nothing to do with the rendition, and has appealed her extradition. But this month, a Portuguese court rejected her final legal appeal. If De Sousa is jailed, she will be the first CIA officer ever imprisoned in connection with the Bush administration’s notorious "extraordinary rendition" program. VICE News traveled to Lisbon, Portugal to meet with De Sousa.

One former detainee alleged he was waterboarded and another described a similar form of water torture, contradicting claims by Bush administration officials that only three men in US custody had been waterboarded. The 154-page report, "Delivered into Enemy Hands: US-Led Abuse and Rendition of Opponents to Gaddafi's Libya," is based on interviews conducted in Libya with 14 former detainees, most of whom belonged to an armed Islamist group that had worked to overthrow Gaddafi for 20 years. Many members of the group, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), joined the NATO-backed anti-Gaddafi rebels in the 2011 conflict. Some of those who were rendered and allegedly tortured in US custody now hold key leadership and political positions in the country.

In the latest issue of Mother Jones magazine, New America Fellow Peter Bergen uses Abu Omar's story to explore the CIA's extraordinary rendition program. Bergen chronicles the rise in extraordinary renditions since 1995 with the help of Program Associate Katherine Tiedemann.

http://www.democracynow.org - As the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence feuds with the CIA over the declassification of its 6,000-page report on the agency's secret detention and interrogation programs, we host a debate between former CIA acting general counsel John Rizzo and human rights attorney Scott Horton. This comes as the United Nations Human Rights Committee has criticized the Obama administration for closing its investigations into the CIA's actions after September 11. A U.N. report issued Thursday stated, "The Committee notes with concern that all reported investigations into enforced disappearances, torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment that had been committed in the context of the CIA secret rendition, interrogation and detention programmes were closed in 2012 leading only to a meager number of criminal charges brought against low-level operatives." Rizzo served as acting general counsel during much of the George W. Bush administration and was a key legal architect of the U.S. interrogation and detention program after the Sept. 11 attacks. He recently published a book titled, "Company Man: Thirty Years of Controversy and Crisis in the CIA." Attorney Scott Horton is contributing editor at Harper's Magazine and author of the forthcoming book, "The Lords of Secrecy: The National Security Elite and America's Stealth Foreign Policy."

'The three European men with Somali roots were arrested on a murky pretext in August as they passed through the small African country of Djibouti. But the reason soon became clear when they were visited in their jail cells by a succession of American interrogators. U.S. agents accused the men — two of them Swedes, the other a longtime resident of Britain — of supporting al-Shabab, an Islamist militia in Somalia that Washington considers a terrorist group. Two months after their arrest, the prisoners were secretly indicted by a federal grand jury in New York, then clandestinely taken into custody by the FBI and flown to the United States to face trial.'* The rendition program- systematic clandestine illegal kidnappings of terrorism suspects - are exploding under President Obama, even thought he spoke out against them when President George W. Bush practiced them. What is going on, and why does it continue?

DemocracyNow.org - Human Rights Watch has uncovered hundreds of letters in the Libyan foreign ministry proving the Gaddafi government directly aided the extraordinary rendition program carried out by the CIA and the MI6 in Britain after the 9/11 attacks. The documents expose how the CIA rendered suspects to Libyan authorities knowing they would be tortured. One of the most prominent suspects rendered to Libya was an Islamic militant named Abdelhakim Belhaj, who is now the military commander for the Libyan rebels. At the time of his capture in 2004, Belhaj was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, a group that had ties to al-Qaeda. Democracy Now! speaks to Peter Bouckaert, the emergencies director at Human Rights Watch, who helped find the documents in Tripoli; and Gareth Peirce, a well-known British human rights attorney who has represented numerous Guantánamo prisoners as well as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
