Episode Description

From the period 2001 to 2005, over a quarter of all countries in the world cooperated in a secret rendition network that enabled the transfer of potential terrorist suspects to undisclosed detention sites. As many as fifty four foreign governments participated in these operations in different ways including; hosting CIA prisons on their soil ; interrogation, torture & abuse of individuals ;Providing intelligence ;Permitting the use of domestic airspace and airports for secret flights to transport detainees. By engaging in torture and other abuses the US government not only violated domestic and international law but left its moral standing on the world stage, in ruins. Overall it eroded support for its counterterrorism efforts worldwide as these abuses came to light. Furthermore, foreign governments failed to protect detainees from secret detention and extraordinary rendition on their territories and the United States undermined longstanding human rights protection, enshrined in international law, including the norm against torture. However, long before it was revealed to the general public, the Clinton Whitehouse was already engaged in policies that amounted to extraordinary rendition. By the mid-1990s the Clinton administration was active in transporting suspects to third-party countries where they were interrogated, tortured and even executed. Under George W. Bush, the scope of the operation simply widened and the legal restraints were loosened, In this episode we detail how the CIA’s ghoulish system of torture was indeed part of a logical progression which developed over time, into the well oiled machinery that we know today. Essentially an orchestrated procedure designed to outsource torture which was slowly being perfected since the early Cold War period (several decades before the events of 9/11). This is because under various administrations dating back to the early post war period, the clandestine forces of the United States were already engaged in taking suspects from one country to another where they were subjected to abuse and in some cases, execution. These procedures have led to unimaginable cruelties, physical and sexual, that were often horrific and barely effective. For most of its history, the United States has cultivated a self serving, virtuous image that torture was always something the enemy did. However this has proved to be a fabricated myth which resurfaces in cyclical fashion to convince each new generation of the sanctity of American values and ideals.
