On June 10th, 2002, Attorney General John Ashcroft announced that the US had captured a known terrorist who was exploring a plan to explode a "dirty
bomb" on American soil.
That alleged terrorist was José Padilla who was finally charged in 2005 with conspiracy to murder.
What Ashcroft didn't talk about was how information against him was obtained – by the relentless torture of one man-- Binyam Mohamed, in the name
of the United States.
Arrested at Karachi Airport before Padilla’s arrest on April 10, 2002, Mohamed was put on a luxury executive jet and flown to an interrogation
center in Morocco.
For over 18 months, he was subjected to one torture after another:
Beating followed beating and, then, his guards produced razor blades and began to split the skin all over his body, including on his genitals.
Since 1997, hundreds of people, many of whom have no ties to terrorist organizations, have been abducted from foreign airports or street corners on
suspicions based at times on the flimsiest of evidence courtesy of the United States Central Intelligence Agency.
In Ghost Plane, Stephen Grey tells the true story of the CIA's torture program known by the euphemism "extraordinary rendition" and the airplanes
that make the program run.
Begun during the Clinton administration, but taking a decidedly more voracious turn after 9/11, the rendition system has seen the transfer of more
than 1000 prisoners into jails stretching from Guantanamo to Syria, from Kabul to Bangkok and beyond.
Grey had access to the thousands of CIA flight records and has interviewed dozens of sources from the most senior levels of the National Security
Council to the CIA.
In Ghost Plane, he paints a disturbing picture of the War on Terror that reaches to the highest levels of power in Washington, D.C. and exposes the
extreme ethical corruption at the heart of this US government program, a program finally acknowledged by President George Bush in September 2006,
undertaken in the name of the citizens of the United States.
That would be cool too. But the Illuminati hates social solidarity like that. Some of the people who join this forum are also disinfo agents and they
might attempt to meet up like CIA intel gathering information and then concoct some major BS on our intentions.
But of course, I always have been eager to meet people like us in person, I think we'd be some of the coolest people on the planet, cause were almost
out of the phony matrix.
I'm more in favor of meeting within our local communities. That's what I thought you meant. I can't really go anywhere. It costs too much. I'm in Los
Angeles (the only EQ zone in the world apparently not somehow attacked by HAARP for some reason) if anyone is interested, U2U me I guess. Or maybe we
should make a different thread for different geographical regions?
