• Inside Story - Policy of rendition - 26 August 09

    Barack Obama, the US president, is being accused of recycling one of his predecessor's most controversial policies: the transfer of prisoners for interrogation, also known as rendition. 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?

  • Mapping the CIA's Rendition, Detention & Torture programme | Professor Ruth Blakeley

    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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

    A decision to render a Russian national to the United States has drew fierce criticism from the Russian government. Konstantin Yaroshenko was arrested in Monrovia, Liberia, by Liberian and US Drug and Enforcement Agency officers on May 30. He was transferred to the United States without the Russian authorities knowing about the case prior to Yaroshenka's extradition. The U.S. State Department said it had tried to alert the Russian Consulate, but the memo was faxed to the wrong embassy. However it's the manner in which the US arrested and rendered Yaroshenka that has the Russian Foreign ministry calling the case 'a kidnapping and abduction.' They also indicated it's a sign of 'open lawlessness' on behalf of the US.

    On the campaign trail, Obama promised an end to torture, extraordinary rendition and secret prisons. But since taking office he has in fact doubled-down on some of the more insidious policies he inherited from the Bush administration. As Nation correspondent Jeremy Scahill explains, Obama has surrounded himself with war hawks, relied on targeted killing and acted unilaterally to defend US interests. Instead of drawing down the two major ground wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, he has shifted combat to special operations units, prolonging US engagement and fighting a "dirty" war.

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.

But, if at times we were able to say what some of these flights are about, all of these flights were about, then it would make an easier position for us and I think it would make public opinion happier on that, I mean people understand. It's an issue that we will just keep in touch, but we've agreed to touch base and we'll do that over the next few of weeks. 6. Wide shot Ahern in front of reporters STORYLINE: Ireland's Prime Minister Bertie Ahern on Friday said he had been assured by the US President that "rendition" flights operated by the CIA in Ireland were "legitimate business". Ahern is in Washington for talks with President Bush and other lawmakers regarding a series of issues including immigration policy and support in completing the Northern Ireland peace process. The Prime Minister said he had asked George W. Bush for a little more "transparency" regarding the cargo on the flights that land and take off from Shannon airport and to make public the purpose of the flights. The British government has acknowledged in recent months that several private planes landed at British military airports and had visited destinations in neighbouring Ireland. The US is embroiled in rows with several countries over the use of airspace and facilities for 'extraordinary rendition' - a process in which "terror" suspects are transferred from the US to countries in which torture is known to occur. US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice last December denied that suspects are tortured in third countries.

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.

"The U.S. counterterrorism practice known as extraordinary rendition, in which suspects were quietly moved to secret prisons abroad and often tortured, involved the participation of more than 50 nations, according to a new report released Tuesday by the Open Society Foundations."* Extraordinary renditions, or secretive kidnappings and imprisonments conducted on terror suspects were conducted under George W. Bush's presidency. Did Obama stop the practices? Not so much. Cenk Uygur breaks it down. *Read more from Joshua Hersh/ Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/04/extraordinary-rendition-torture-report_n_2617809.html Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Aired on June 11, 2007 The Bush Administration is flinching under a series of blows to its enemy combatant policy. A U.S. appeals court which has ruled that the government cannot indefinitely detain an immigrant named Ali Al-mari without laying charges. And twenty-five CIA agents face a judge in Rome...accused of kidnapping a muslim man who was flown to Egypt -- where he says he was tortured. At the same time, European investigator Dick Marty has just released a report with what he calls proof of CIA secret prisons in Poland and Romania. Michael Scheuer worked for the CIA for 22 years and is the author of Imperial Hubris: Why the West is Losing the War on Terror. Architect of the original rendition program under the Clinton administration, he defends the practice. And there's more confusion about the legal status of Omar Khadr and other Guantanamo detainees. A military judge just threw out charges against Khadr accused of murdering a US soldier on the battlefield in Afghanistan when he was 15 years old. For more on Gitmo's legal limbo, Avi talks to Michael Ratner, President of the Center for Constitutional Rights, who calls it a 'breakdown of justice'.

On the campaign trail, Obama promised an end to torture, extraordinary rendition and secret prisons. But since taking office he has in fact doubled-down on some of the more insidious policies he inherited from the Bush administration. As Nation correspondent Jeremy Scahill explains, Obama has surrounded himself with war hawks, relied on targeted killing and acted unilaterally to defend US interests. Instead of drawing down the two major ground wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, he has shifted combat to special operations units, prolonging US engagement and fighting a "dirty" war.
