• Inside Story - Policy of rendition - 26 August 09

    Barack Obama, the US president, is being accused of recycling one of his predecessor's most controversial policies: the transfer of prisoners for interrogation, also known as rendition. Has rendition helped the US in its so-called war on terror? And how would Obama reconcile this policy with his rhetoric on human rights?

    THINK KENT – INTERNATIONAL THINKERS | GLOBAL IMPACT The CIA’s Rendition, Detention and Interrogation (RDI) programme was established as part of the US-led ‘War on Terror’ for the apprehension and detention of terrorism suspects, in secret, so that they could be interrogated under torture.

  • As Italy Sentences 23 CIA Agents in Rendition Case, Obama Refuses To Prosecute Over Torture

    DemocracyNow.org. - Italy's High Court has upheld the sentences of 23 CIA operatives convicted of kidnapping a Muslim cleric under the U.S. program of "extraordinary rendition." The cleric, Abu Omar, was seized from the streets of Milan in 2003 and taken to U.S. bases in Italy and Germany before being sent to Egypt, where he was tortured during a four-year imprisonment. The Americans were all convicted in absentia after the United States refused to hand them over. The ruling marks the final appeal in the first trial anywhere in the world involving the CIA's practice of rendering terror suspects to countries that allow torture. But back in 2008, then presidential candidate Barack Obama unequivocally denounced torture and extraordinary rendition. Well, according to our guest, four years afte...

US: Torture and Rendition to Gaddafi's Libya New Accounts of Waterboarding, Other Water Torture, Abuses in Secret Prisons http://www.hrw.org/news/2012/09/05/us-torture-and-rendition-gaddafi-s-libya (Washington, DC, September 6, 2012) -- The Unites States government during the Bush administration tortured opponents of Muammar Gaddafi, then transferred them to mistreatment in Libya, according to accounts by former detainees and recently uncovered CIA and UK Secret Service documents, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. One former detainee alleged he was waterboarded and another described a similar form of water torture, contradicting claims by Bush administration officials that only three men in US custody had been waterboarded. The 154-page report, "Delivered into Enemy Hands: US-Led Abuse and Rendition of Opponents to Gaddafi's Libya," is based on interviews conducted in Libya with 14 former detainees, most of whom belonged to an armed Islamist group that had worked to overthrow Gaddafi for 20 years. Many members of the group, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), joined the NATO-backed anti-Gaddafi rebels in the 2011 conflict. Some of those who were rendered and allegedly tortured in US custody now hold key leadership and political positions in the country.

US RENDITION & TORTURE: The Countries That Helped The CIA to KIDNAP, DETAIN & TORTURE A hard-hitting report by a human rights organisation has pieced together evidence that 54 nations — including Pakistan, Afghanistan, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Syria — had participated in "secret detention, extraordinary rendition, and enhanced interrogation" programmes conducted regularly by the U.S. government since the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. India was not included in the list. The report, issued by the Open Society Justice Initiative, part of the Open Society Foundation (OSF) based in New York, was authored by a team including Amrit Singh, daughter of India's Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh. In it, the organisation argued that though torture and rendition programmes were "designed to be conducted outside the United States under cover of secrecy, [they] could not have been implemented without the active participation of foreign governments". These governments too must be held accountable, it said. In the report titled "Globalizing Torture: CIA Secret Detention and Extraordinary Rendition", the organisation provides a detailed account of how it collected evidence of torture and rendition from credible public sources. "This report is the most comprehensive catalogue of the treatment of 136 individuals reportedly subjected to these operations," the report said, adding that while there may be many more such individuals, the total number will remain unknown until the U.S. and its partners made this information publicly available. The report lists all 136 alleged detainees, including a Libyan woman, Fatima Bouchar, who was seized in 2004 in Kuala Lumpur and, according to her husband, was abused by the CIA for several days in a special room in the airport. Ms. Bouchar also reported that she was "chained to a wall and not fed for five days, at a time when she was four-and-a-half months pregnant". The list also includes alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, on trial at the U.S.' Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba and potentially facing the death penalty. According to the report, within days of his arrest in Pakistan, the CIA secretly detained him in Afghanistan and then transferred him to Poland, "where he was water-boarded 183 times". A leaked International Committee of the Red Cross report suggested Mohammed "knew that he was in Poland when he received a bottle of water with a Polish label". In its recommendations, the report asks the U.S. government to repudiate the CIA's practice of extraordinary rendition; cease reliance on "diplomatic assurances" against torture as a basis for transferring individuals to foreign countries; disclose information relating to the human rights violations that did occur; create an independent, non-partisan board to review compensation claims from victims; and institute safeguards to ensure that future joint counterterrorism operations do not run afoul of human rights standards. It acknowledges that under the Obama administration the U.S. government's position on torture and rendition has changed substantively. In particular, in December 2012, the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence voted to approve a comprehensive report on CIA detention and interrogation and though the report is classified, Committee Chair Senator Dianne Feinstein reportedly said "she and a majority of the committee believed that the creation of long-term, clandestine black sites and the use of so-called enhanced interrogation techniques were terrible mistakes". She also noted that the report would settle the debate once and for all over whether the U.S. should ever employ coercive interrogation techniques.
