ACLU Sues Aerospace Company For Torture

This is rich. The ACLU is going sue happy again, and suing any private company that has ever been affiliated with the CIA. The ACLU is claiming this company is guilty of torturing terrorist suspects. Well, not really torturing the suspects themselves, but rather helping the CIA do it.


CBS affiliate KPIX in San Francisco is reporting that a SPeace activists allege Jeppesen International Trip Planning organized secret "extraordinary rendition" flights for terrorism suspects on behalf of the CIA, usually to countries that practiced torture.

An ACLU spokesman in New York confirmed that a lawsuit will be filed in federal court in Northern California against "an aerospace company," however the spokeswoman would not name the company pending a teleconference on Tuesday morning.

Basically, the ACLU is saying that the aerospace company is guilty of allowing the CIA to torture suspects on their planes, or by flying suspects to places where they may be tortured.

It's guilty by association. The company never carried out any torture themselves, but because they were contracted by the CIA ... they are guilty of it anyway. Since the ACLU hasn't been able to get a torture conviction in their lawsuits against the US ... they'll go after private companies that do business with the US now.
