Enemy of the State Secret

Yesterday the Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal of a German man who was picked up by the CIA in Macedonia, taken to Afghanistan, tortured and then dropped off in remotest Albania. Oops, mistaken identity. He wanted some compensation and an apology. He had lost in lower courts because our government said if the trial went forward they would have to reveal state secrets.
You watch, eventually it will come out that the state secret they would have to reveal is that they are transporting people around the world to be tortured.


  1. I liked Joseph Heller a lot more when I thought he wrote fiction.

  2. Proud to be an american where at least I know I'm free. . . . .
