The Washington Post has some ugly details on another “rendition” case, in which US authorities caught someone they felt might have information they wanted, then handed him over to an ally that specializes in torture (Egypt, in this case) so his fingernails could be torn out, electroshocks applied, and so on, unhindered by the quaint limitations our Constitution places on such things: Terror suspect alleges torture.
