This report focuses on the human rights abuses associated with the CIA's post-September 11, 2001 secret detention and extraordinary rendition operations. It documents the secret detention of detainees in CIA custody outside the United States, and the extraordinary detention of detainees without meaningful legal process to the custody of foreign governments for the purposes of detention and interrogation, often in the face of a real risk of being tortured. The book provides, for the first time anywhere, the most comprehensive account of the human rights abuses committed by the CIA in "war on terror." It identifies 138 victims of illegal detention and extraordinary detention and describes in searing detain the abuses they suffered. It also identifies 54 foreign governments that collaborated with the United States in these illegal practices.
