The CIA’s Record of Detention, Rendition and Torture

From the newsletter:

Dear Friends,

Ghost flights, black sites, and stories of appalling abuse.

Please take a minute to watch Amrit Singh of the Open Society Justice Initiative describe the grim realities of the CIA’s post-9/11 campaign of secret detention and torture.

She has compiled a first-of-its-kind report that tells the story of how the United States used its position to cajole, persuade, and strong-arm 54 other countries to take part in the CIA’s highly classified programs.

From Australia to Iran, Canada to Sweden, Hong Kong to Indonesia. The list is shocking.

Even though I—you—have heard many stories about what was done in the name of the war against terror, I found myself shocked again about what was done under the CIA’s secret programs after 9/11.

These are not the practices of an open society. Only with a full reckoning can the United States hope to close the door on this shameful chapter in its history.

Take a step toward puncturing the layers of secrecy. Watch—and share—this video.
