"Boeing sued over torture rendition flights."

The ACLU has filed suit charging that a Boeing subsidiary “knowingly provided direct flight services to the CIA that enabled the clandestine transportation of the men to secret overseas locations, where they were tortured and subjected to other ‘forms of cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment’ under the agency’s ‘extraordinary rendition’ program.”

“American corporations should not be profiting from a CIA rendition program that is unlawful and contrary to core American values,” said Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the ACLU. “Corporations that choose to participate in such activity can and should be held legally accountable.”
