executive director Anthony Romero blogged on the extraordinary rendition suit the ACLU filed on Wednesday in today’s Huffington Post. The suit charges Boeing subsidary Jeppensen Dataplan with knowingly profiting from the CIA’s practice of kidnapping foreign nationals. Romero writes:

The New Yorker broke the story when a former Jeppesen employee quoted a senior executive on the record. “We do all of the extraordinary rendition flights , you know, the torture flights,” the source said. “Let’s face it, some of these flights end up that way [and] it certainly pays well. [The CIA] spare[s] no expense. They have absolutely no worry about costs.”
