What do the Red Sox have to do with torture?
This is a guest post from AlterNet interviewer Onnesha Roychoudhuri: What do the Red Sox have to do with torture? And what about suburban lawyers in Massacahusetts and Nevada? Quite a lot, actually. Authors of the new book Torture Taxi, A.C. Thompson and Trevor Paglen, spent months investigating the CIA's system of exporting torture.
Their extraordinary conclusion is that there's a distinct problem with the term "extraordinary rendition": it's far more ordinary than people could ever have imagined. From rural North Carolina to Kabul, Afghanistan, Thompson and Paglan follow the sloppy paper trail left behind by the CIA to find an infrastructure that is supported by everyday Americans who choose to keep torture a secret.
