Hassan Mustafa Osama Nasr, known as Abu Omar, was taken from Italy and transferred to a prison in Egypt, where, she said, he was repeatedly tortured. While acknowledging a program of “extraordinary rendition,” or abducting terrorism suspects outside the United States, the Bush administration claims that no one is sent to nations that torture.
“I found him wasted, skinny — so skinny — his hair had turned white, he had a hearing aid,” Ms. Nabila said, recounting her husband’s condition between prison stays in 2004.
Wearing a veil that revealed only her eyes, Ms. Nabila at first said she “didn’t want to talk about” any abuse against her husband in prison. But advised by prosecutors that she had no choice, she told the court in tears: “He was tied up like he was being crucified. He was beat up, especially around his ears. He was subjected to electroshocks to many body parts.”
“To his genitals?” the prosecutors asked.
“Yes,” she replied.

The history of Extraordinary Rendition I find troubling. When did it go from this unaccepted, unheard of Covert Program to Government Policy?
It's scary how quickly things escalate within the CIA; one man's ramblings are another man's agenda.
Either way, it's winning us no favors in the war on terror when sh*t like this keeps happening.
The thing is if we as a nation condone this action by our military or intelligence agencies then we as a whole become just as bad as the idiots we're trying to stop.
