The CIA’s Torture Network

| February 12, 2013

When the CIA began to abduct, detain, interrogate, and torture suspected terrorists after 9/11, they did so with the help of numerous foreign governments, including Canada.

This month, the Open Society Foundations released the report Globalizing Torture, which they call the “most comprehensive account yet assembled of the human rights abuses associated with CIA secret detention and extraordinary rendition operations.” The graphic below maps the CIA’s network of foreign partners based on the findings of that report.
