North Carolina: First in Flight, Not First in>Torture

Watch the video of this group in North Carolina that is targeting a local airline>services company, Aero Contractors, because that company has provided flights for the CIA program of "extraordinary rendition." Extraordinary rendition is a legalistic phrase for kidnapping people off the streets of countries like Italy and Bosnia, without warrants, and shipping them secretly to secret prisons. Often the people are tortured in those prisons.
These Tarheels' slogan: North Carolina: First in Flight, Not First in Torture.
8 were arrested at this protest as they tried to serve the company officials with "arrest warrants".

If you want to know more about the CIA rendition program read Stephen Grey's book "GHOST PLANES".
