The ugly history of ‘rendition’

This is the official trailer for the new movie “Rendition” starring Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, Alan Arkin, Jake Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard.

From British daily The Independent:

Rendition is nothing new. In 1908, British diplomat Henry Cockburn fought a furious battle with his own government to prevent a Korean journalist from being handed over to the Japanese for torture. His grandson, Patrick Cockburn, uncovers a long-forgotten scandal, and explains why it reverberates more than ever today.
