[New York] ACLU, el-Masri SUING CIA for Torture--Mistaken ID!

Clayton Hallmark | CIA prisons and CIA flights are a growing front-page story, and Khaled el-Masri is a good example of why we all should oppose such extrajudcial flights and prisons. El-Masri is the first to sue the CIA for "rendition," or kidnapping-to-torture. The ACLU in New York will assist. This article presents the kind of information they will use. He can't sue the CIA? He can, and there are individuals he can sue, including top officials like the CIA official, the Deputy Director of Operations, who authorizes renditions and each of 6 steps in the escalation of CIA torture. Once-proud Germany allows its citizens to be treated thus: El-Masri, a German citizen charged and suspected of nothing, was arrested on vacation as he crossed the Macedonian border on New Year's Eve 2003. He was transported by a US company, Premier Executive Transport on a 737 jet to a secret US gulag in Aghanistan. He was dumped in Albania 5 months later when the CIA caught on that they had the wrong guy. It would seem PET, who provided the plane, and whatever company supplied the pilots, could be sued as well. Many such suits could ensue.

DONALD IARUSSI | Survivors of hurricane katrina have been treated badly by FEMA and the AMERICAN RED CROSS. They gave poor people and black people less than those who were white or middle class.
