a meeting but france decided to have this meeting and i think that shows the armies and the anger of some of the u.s. is closest allies they're worried about what this means for middle east peace and for coming up with a peace settlement in the long term they're also worried about the precedent this sets that if you can gain land militarily as israel did in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven that should not be the way to change borders it goes against the u.n. security council resolutions it goes against the u.n. own charter in existence since the second world war and surveys are the latest from the u.n. thank you. the political leader of hamas says made his first public appearance in gaza since his office was bombed israel anya's office was one of a number of buildings destroyed on monday and tuesday night by israeli jets dozens of rockets were also fired into israel and he has declared victory and says a ceasefire brokered by egypt is now in place. palestinian resistance kept

a dog chapter in the nation's history. smithfield's north carolina. a quiet backwater in america's south. on the face of it an unremarkable bible belt town tug to meet rural wooded countryside. but thirteen years ago stories started to emerge suggesting something sinister was going on. mysterious flights leaving from the lives an airport. people were being seized from their homes in streets around the
world transported to foreign prisons and secret cia interrogation camps known as black sites. you feel some sort of them would give off a. reporter for. somebody for. the covert operation officially called extraordinary rendition took place in the years between two thousand and two to two thousand and nine. in north carolina locals began calling the flights from their local airports torture taxes this was a planned orchestrated program of kidnapping for torture i found that to be just intolerable we spoke to a woman whose husband was another victim of rendition. to

local firm that supplied planes for the secret cia program. in the years following two thousand and five allison and her friends began to investigate air a contract is she realized that some of the people involved with the company would people she knew one was and the term. too. had children the same age as my and it was shocking right because they were prominent members of the community so they put themselves out there as being you know. standard of morality. it took real courage for these local women and their supporters to investigate and to confront what was being done in their state. towards. the. i. was.
to confront it they did you see that were contacting them here to ask them to come out and meet with us which they did not do the only thing. us senate intelligence committee think is suggest one hundred nineteen individuals held by the cia really a cool truth whom we later found to be improperly detained in much of the program and the possibly many hundreds more seized remains unnamed. but what's clear are a contract has played a central role transporting forty nine individuals for interrogation. on the other side of the world in london i think makes it westminster university
have pieced together how the program worked aero contractors maintains an operating profit in particular which was central to the war on terror and the torture program the evidence is absolutely incontrovertibly the torture program took place but it violated domestic and international law many many points and the north carolina air contract was central to about program. we traveled to gratz nostra to meet el masry in late two thousand and three he was arrested on holiday at the macedonian border he was then taken to a small hotel room where an official accused him of being a member of al qaeda. and served which he missed from. was the. reason the scope of the. problems i can see them dressed in. college was telling the truth he was not a member of al qaeda shockingly this was
a case of mistaken identity but that came worse he was handed over to u.s. agents and bundled onto an air a contract as plane. on dunnhumby from orgon. or fear for life even our. muscular or human political if you have. a name to him his destination was a site in afghanistan used to cia interrogation one of a network of foreign prisons and secret say called cia black sites places where suspected terrorists many of whom turned out to be innocent was systematically tortured in a brutal period to gain intelligence. this man was
a career cia operative his name is glenn hall he vividly remembers his first impression of one cia interrogation cound in an unnamed country. inside it is immediately the pitch black. as black as any darkness you have ever experienced. you cannot see. you you could not see your fingers here in front of absolute darkness. and disorienting and deafening. silence a brutal regime designed to undermine prison his sense of self and induce helpless dependence we think unconsciously that. the sun will rise once a day and then sets into the day that's one of the defining unthought of realities

of the united states we're talking about torturing and that is illegal and. i wouldn't do it declassified documents prison as accounts and reports outline a vision of the busa euphemistically known as enhanced interrogation subsequently denounced as torture techniques included waterboarding simulated drowning rule slamming sleep deprivation extreme stress positions and sexual and psychological abuse. is as or best mind to be picked up as well not also gets old and older and in one dimension will see the fact that some of them via their finish the necessary undisclosed skill to god be a squirm something known go sightseeing as you can advise a card from. a number which also it says.
