Rendition: A Film Review
  • Gil J. Villagran
"RENDITION," a movie currently being shown in San Jose, CA., is a reality-based account of the C.I.A.'s clandestine program of abducting foreign nationals (so far) suspected  of terrorist ties to transport them by airplane to detention facilities outside the U.S. where  international human rights and the Geneva Convention Against Torture and Inhumane Treatment safeguards are not respected. These detention sites are located in countries including Jordan, Iraq, Egypt,  Syria, Afghanistan, and at the U.S. military base at  Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.
