"Extraordinary rendition and irregular rendition are terms used to describe the apprehension and extrajudicial transfer of a person from one state to another. "Torture by proxy" is used by some critics to describe situations in which the United States has purportedly transferred suspected terrorists to countries known to employ harsh interrogation techniques that may rise to the level of torture."
If you watch MSNBC, extraordinary rendition is one of the horrible rotten things that were done by Bush, Cheney, Rice, et al., for which the Obama administration constantly apologizes and for which many think there should be investigations, trials and disbarments.
Unless, of course, Obama does it.
"The Obama administration says it is inching closer to a deal that would send an estimated 100 Yemeni detainees at Guantanamo Bay to Saudi terrorist rehabilitation centers and speed the closing of the Navy prison."
In case you didn't know, Saudi Arabia is one of those "countries known to employ harsh interrogation techniques that may rise to the level of torture".
The Saudis are the people with the medieval justice system in which the testimony of men outweighs the testimony of women, and in which punishments include beheading and whipping and stoning and chopping off the hands of thieves.
The occasional waterboarding is the least of your worries in a "Saudi terrorist rehabilitation center".
