Since 9/11, the CIA has quietly kidnapped more than 100 people and detained them at prisons throughout the world. Often, the detainees are tortured, or disappear. The program is called “extraordinary rendition,” and is a key part of one of the largest U.S. clandestine operations. The authors explore the CIA program by traveling to: Mass. to profile a CIA front co. that supplies airplanes to the CIA; NC, to track down the pilots who fly CIA aircraft; San Fran. to a “planespotter” who monitors the CIA’s movements; Afghanistan, where the authors visit the “Salt Pit” prison and interview released Afghan detainees. Five years after 9/11, the rendition program has been formalized, and constantly changing its cover to remain hidden from sight. Photos.
