The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to review the case of a German man who says he was kidnapped and tortured by CIA agents.You SEE!!!
The court did not give its reasons for dismissing the suit, but lower courts have ruled that letting Khaled el-Masri's case go to trial would reveal state secrets.
El-Masri, a German citizen of Lebanese descent, says he was kidnapped by CIA agents in Macedonia in 2003 and flown to Afghanistan. He says he was held for months on suspicion of terrorism and tortured by his interrogators, freed only when U.S. officials determined they seized the wrong man.
Many U.S. allies have condemned Washington's practice of arresting terror suspects and flying them to third countries for questioning.
Human rights groups say they are concerned that some prisoners are tortured.

Clearly just because one person was accidentally rendered, doesn't mean that we make a practice of accidentally rendering folks... besides this is a time of transferring the tax liabilities unto the unborn and we must protect the state secrets, like where Jimmy Hoffa has been Living in a Love Triangle With Elvis and The Space Aliens...
So all americans can trust the president that when he said we found the WMD's we really did, and those radical left wing extremists stabbing our troops in the back like David Kay, were, all god hating america bashers who are Opposed To Divine Truth!!!
