"America's programs of extraordinary renditions and harsh treatments for prisoners have not, when considered strategically, been weapons AGAINST terrorism...Ultimately these are tactics that ENCOURAGE terrorism and help lose the war. Ignoring human rights helps recruit terrorists, justifies terrorism, and defeats the best thing we have going for us -- the fact we stand for something better: for freedom, tolerance, and laws that protect all." Stephen Grey September 2006 End of his book -Ghost Plane- St. Martin's Press
