A Debate on Torture: Legal Architect of CIA Secret Prisons, Rendition vs. Human Rights Attorney 1/3
28 March 2014
As the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence feuds with the CIA over the declassification of its 6,000-page report on the agency’s secret detention and interrogation programs, we host a debate between former CIA acting general counsel John Rizzo and human rights attorney Scott Horton. This comes as the United Nations Human Rights Committee has criticized the Obama administration for closing its investigations into the CIA’s actions after September 11.
A U.N. report issued Thursday stated, “The Committee notes with concern that all reported investigations into enforced disappearances, torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment that had been committed in the context of the CIA secret rendition, interrogation and detention programmes were closed in 2012 leading only to a meager number of criminal charges brought against low-level operatives.” Rizzo served as acting general counsel during much of the George W. Bush administration and was a key legal architect of the U.S. interrogation and detention program after the Sept. 11 attacks. He recently published a book titled, “Company Man: Thirty Years of Controversy and Crisis in the CIA.” Attorney Scott Horton is contributing editor at Harper’s Magazine and author of the forthcoming book, “The Lords of Secrecy: The National Security Elite and America’s Stealth Foreign Policy.”

From Italian news agency ANSA:
Baseball boss cited in CIA case
Red Sox jet allegedly used on first leg of ‘rendition’
MILAN – The part owner of a US baseball team has been cited as one of the prosecution witnesses in next month’s trial of CIA and Italian spies for abducting an Egyptian cleric suspected of terror offences.
Prosecutors on Friday called Boston Red Sox minority owner Philip Morse as one of their witnesses in the 2003 abduction of Hassan Mustafa Omar Nasr, then head of Milan’s main mosque.
The prosecutors claim Morse’s Gulfstream jet was used to whisk Nasr from a US air force base in Italy to one in Germany, from where he was allegedly flown for interrogation to Egypt.
Nasr, who is also known as Abu Omar, was released from an Egyptian jail earlier this year, saying he had been tortured and raped.
The prosecution called some 130 witnesses including policemen who worked on the case and journalists who covered it, as well as leaders of Italy’s Muslim community including Nasr – who is still in Egypt and has been banned from leaving the country.
They also called Dick Marty, head of the European Parliament committee which earlier this year condemned the US’s policy – called ‘extraordinary rendition‘ – of flying terrorism suspects for interrogation in third countries with poor human rights records.
Among the other surprise witnesses was the former head of security at Italy’s biggest phone company, Telecom Italia, who is under investigation for acquiring confidential information on several prominent citizens.
The trial, which involves the former head of Italy’s military intelligence service, Niccolo’ Pollari, and several of his men, is due to start on June 8 in Milan.
The 26 CIA agents will be tried in absentia.
