Ex-Worker: Air Firm Aided CIA Renditions
14 Dec 2007
A Boeing subsidiary accused of helping the CIA secretly fly terrorism suspects to be tortured in overseas prisons openly acknowledged its role in the "extraordinary rendition" program, a former employee of the smaller company said in court papers Friday. The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a federal suit claiming Jeppesen Dataplan Inc. enabled the clandestine transportation of five terrorism suspects to overseas locations where they were subjected to "forms of cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment." The U.S. government has asked a federal judge to throw out the lawsuit on the basis that trying the case would result in the release of 'sensitive state secrets.'
