Suspects Possibly Taken To Nations That Torture

According to a report published in Monday?s Washington Post, three European nations have launched investigations regarding the CIA role in abductions of international terror suspects within their borders. The registration-restricted Washington Post article is excerpted below:

MILAN ? A radical Egyptian cleric known as Abu Omar was walking to a Milan mosque for noon prayers in February 2003 when he was grabbed on the sidewalk by two men, sprayed in the face with chemicals and stuffed into a van. He hasn?t been seen since.


Milan investigators, however, now appear to be close to identifying his kidnappers. Last month, officials showed up at Aviano Air Base in northern Italy and demanded records of any American planes that had flown into or out of the joint U.S.-Italian military installation around the time of the abduction. They also asked for logs of vehicles that had entered the base.


Italian authorities suspect the Egyptian was the target of a CIA-sponsored operation known as rendition, in which terrorism suspects are forcibly taken for interrogation to countries where torture is practiced.


The Italian probe is one of three official investigations that have surfaced in the past year into renditions believed to have taken

place in Western Europe. Although the CIA usually carries out the operations with the help or blessing of friendly local intelligence agencies, law enforcement authorities in Italy, Germany and Sweden are examining whether U.S. agents may have broken local laws by detaining terrorist suspects on European soil and subjecting them to abuse or maltreatment.


The CIA has kept details of rendition cases a closely guarded secret, but has defended the controversial practice as an effective and legal way to prevent terrorism. Intelligence officials have testified that they have relied on the tactic with greater frequency since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

What's the Geneva convention? That thing we never follow and break all the time and get away with it?

Geneva Convention doesn't mean anything to US... same with other international agreements... ~Kyoto Treaty.
