I was a little surprise to see CNN report the story of Khaled El-Masri who is a German citizen that was abducted and tortured outside of Germany in Afghanistan.  Khaled El-Masri said to CNN that he was kidnapped in late 2003 while on holiday in Macedonia. In an interview with German weekly Die Zeit, he said after having been interrogated in Macedonia for several days, he was flown to Afghanistan where he was held in a secret prison for several months and severely beaten in interrogation sessions. After that he was iraq_004-7429711.jpgflown to Albania where he was just dumped along the side of the road.

This is not the first case in which the U.S. has made a mistake in accusing, abducting and torturing citizens of other countries.  This is a routine policy enforced by President Bush.  International law is no longer followed and the U.S. has become the country of rogue cowboys (aka neo-cons).

Germany has issued an arrest warrant for the 13 CIA agents who were implicated in this.  The likelihood of E.U. authorities capturing those CIA agents are minuet.  It leaves me to wonder how many people are being held in CIA prisons around the world who have no connection to Al Qaeda.  We are a nation that has lost it values and beliefs in my opinion and time has long since past where a drastic change needs to happen.
