German man sues CIA over torture

As reported on the Al Jeezera website, a lawsuit was filed in a U.S. federal court by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on behalf of a German citizen - Khaled el-Masri. (HUH ??)

Masri, 42, a Lebanese-born German citizen, says he was kidnapped in Macedonia in 2003, drugged, beaten and then flown to Afghanistan, where he was subjected to "coercive" interrogation under inhumane conditions.

Here is a statement from the ACLU website...... The ACLU continues to pursue the release of information about detainee torture and abuse at U.S. detention centers. The truth must be aired and our leaders held accountable. Masri is now seeking damages of at least $75,000 and an apology. more.....

Who's side are they on anyway, why aren't they more concerned about AMERICAN citizens
