CIA Filth in the News

The CIA relied on intelligence based on torture in prisons in Uzbekistan, a place where widespread torture practices include raping suspects with broken bottles and boiling them alive, says a former British ambassador to the central Asian country.

Craig Murray, the rector of the University of Dundee in Scotland and until 2004 the UK's ambassador to Uzbekistan, said the CIA not only relied on confessions gleaned through extreme torture, it sent terror war suspects to Uzbekistan as part of its extraordinary rendition program.
An Italian judge has convicted 23 Americans - all but one of them CIA agents - and two Italian secret agents for the 2003 kidnap of a Muslim cleric.

The agents were accused of abducting Hassan Mustafa Osama Nasr, known as Abu Omar, from Milan and sending him to Egypt, where he was allegedly tortured.

The trial, which began in June 2007, is the first involving the CIA's so-called "extraordinary rendition" programme.
Glenn Greenwald makes some good points here on the Italian case.

Not only is torture deeply immoral, evil and degrading to our country, it is very illegal. But apparently our wonderful country does not care about these matters, and no CIA or Bush administration torturer has yet been prosecuted for breaking the law.

and Rendition the movie was a boring piece of sh*t, which also was a piece of propaganda because the central message of the film was "torture is necessary in a time of terror"...i guarantee that film was funded or produced by some spook agency...
