Anatomy of a CIA ‘rendition’ gone wrong

Anatomy of a CIA ‘rendition’ gone wrong - washingtonpost.com Highlights - MSNBC.com

Y'know, we left America because I couldn't stay in a country that could re-elect Bush AND support an unnecessary war in Iraq. The kind of stories above don't make me want to rush back anytime soon...

I can understand the need for aggressive interrogation techniques up to and even including torture, but only under extraordinary circumstances. But not when they have become such a common, standard operating procedure that the WRONG men are routinely abducted, tortured and released without even so much as a "sorry". Doesn't strike me as a valid defense of freedom, not anyone's.
