CIA Probing Only Ten Rendition Cases
Between 100 and 150 people have been spirited away on Ghost Air and imprisoned in foreign countries pursuant to our secret extraordinary rendition program. The CIA is onlyinvestigating only ten cases of those it believes may have been swept up in error.
Said Tom Malinowski, Washington office director of Human Rights Watch: "I am glad the CIA is investigating the cases that they are aware of, but by definition you are not going to be aware of all such cases, when you have a process designed to avoid judicial safeguards."
He said there is no guarantee that Egypt, Uzbekistan or Syria will release people handed over to them if they turn out to be innocent, and he distrusts promises the U.S. receives that the individuals will not be tortured.
