Ireland facilitated CIA's secret detention, rendition and interrogation of suspects after 9/11
Report shows “moral cost” as Ireland aided in the transportation of suspects
The report states, “By engaging in torture and other abuses associated with secret detention and extraordinary rendition, the US government violated domestic and international law, thereby diminishing its moral standing and eroding support for its counterterrorism efforts worldwide as these abuses came to light.”
Recommendations to the United States government include that the administration repudiate the CIA’s practice of extraordinary rendition and cease its reliance on “diplomatic assurances” against torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
It also called on other governments to refuse to participate in CIA extraordinary rendition and “institute safeguards” to ensure no future operations violate human rights standards.
In December 2012 the European Court of Human Rights found the CIA responsible for the torture of Khalied el-Masri, a German citizen abducted by the agency and taken to Afghanistan in a case of mistaken identification.
Last Friday, an Italian court convicted a CIA station chief and two other US citizens of kidnapping a radical cleric, taken from the streets of Milan in 2003 and sent to Egypt.
