This video is called Khaled El-Masri – Victim of C.I.A. Rendition.
CIA kidnap victim Khaled El-Masri and attorneys speak outside a Virginia federal court in the USA after a hearing in the ACLU’s challenge to ‘extraordinary rendition.’
El-Masri was abducted, detained and flown to a secret torture facility by CIA operatives, who interrogated him for four months before realizing he had been kidnapped by mistake and releasing him in the dark of night on a hill in Albania.

As part of CIA’s “extraordinary rendition” program
Boeing subsidiary accused of profiting from torture
1 June 2007
The American Civil Liberties Union filed suit May 30 accusing Jeppesen Dataplan, a subsidiary of Boeing, of providing flight services that enabled the CIA to transport suspects illegally to locations where they were brutally tortured.
The ACLU filed the suit on behalf of three men, Binyam Mohamed, Abou Elkassim Britel and Ahmed Agiza, who have suffered nightmarish fates at the hands of one or more intelligence service. All three men remain incarcerated.
At a New York City press conference, ACLU lawyer Ben Wizner commented, “This is the first time we are accusing a blue-chip American company of profiting from torture.”
