Man Sues CIA

As reported by the BBC, Khaled al-Masri, a German citizen, claims that he was kidnapped by the CIA, then taken to Afghanistan, where US government agents subjected him to torture and humiliation.

The landmark lawsuit was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in a district court in Alexandria, Virginia.

It claims that Mr Tenet and other CIA officials violated US and universal human rights laws when they authorised agents to kidnap Mr Masri.
This stuff is sickening, and the policy that is allowing it to go on comes from the top. Whoever is responsible for this flagrant barbarism must be made to pay. America has expended all of its moral capital in this so-called "war". The damage that has been done to our reputation, our economy, and our credibility as responsible world leaders has been staggering due to the selfishness and arrogance of a self-serving cabal of the power-mad.

Hey hey hey, the CIA thought he was a Terrorist. That gives them carte blanche to do whatever they want.
