Bush-Era Torture Program More Than 50 Countries Involved

And nobody has reported, in all this time, nor probably can even with the FOIA as the CIA extended budget monies are considered extremely top secret and any pages given would be all blacked out in redaction, how many billions were paid out or promises made to countries to participate. That also goes for countries not participating in the extraordinary renditions but fell in line to support that administration in it's so called 'coalition of the willing' and either sent only a few troops or with most none at all, especially related to Iraq, as they quickly abandoned the main missions for even sending the military into that region with the drum beats pointed at Iraq, and the country cheered on that abandoning with flag waving patriotism(?)!! All rubber stamped and on the countries credit card, many of those still in congress, as that rubber stamping and the deficits from had started well before 9/11!!

Extraordinary Rendition Report Finds More Than 50 Nations Involved In Global Torture Scheme
WASHINGTON -- 02/04/2013 -- The U.S. counterterrorism practice known as extraordinary rendition, in which suspects were quietly moved to secret prisons abroad and often tortured, involved the participation of more than 50 nations, according to a new report to be released Tuesday by the Open Society Foundations.

The OSF report, which offers the first wholesale public accounting of the top-secret program, puts the number of governments that either hosted CIA "black sites," interrogated or tortured prisoners sent by the U.S., or otherwise collaborated in the program at 54. The report also identifies by name 136 prisoners who were at some point subjected to extraordinary rendition.

The number of nations and the names of those detained provide a stark tally of a program that was expanded widely -- critics say recklessly -- by the George W. Bush administration after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and has been heavily condemned in the years since. In December, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairwoman of the Senate Select Intelligence Committee, condemned the CIA's detention and interrogation efforts as "terrible mistakes." read more>>>

None of those rubber stamped multibillion's have been paid down yet, for the wars, for the deal making and no bid private sector contracts and especially the long term results of as to the Veterans from!!
