    German Citizen Files Abduction Lawsuit Against US

    From Democracy Now!:

    Meanwhile, the American Civil Liberties Union has filed suit in federal court on behalf of a German citizen who says American agents kidnapped and rendered him to Afghanistan, where he was held captive and tortured. Five months after his December 2003 arrest, Khaled El-Masri was returned to Europe when the CIA realized they had the wrong man. After a meeting with Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice Tuesday in Berlin, German chancellor Angela Merkel said Rice had admitted the mistake. But a senior US official traveling with Rice told the Financial Times this was not the case. Referring to Chancellor Merkel, the official said: “We are not quite sure what was in her head.”
