Protest Torture Flights at Jeppesen!
Appeals Court Sides with the CIA!
Hold the Torturers Accountable!

On Wednesday, September 8, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals threw out the lawsuit that charged Jeppesen Dataplan (a Boeing subsidiary) with complicity in the CIA torture flights. The Obama Justice Dept. had asked the court to throw out the lawsuit because it might reveal "state secrets".

What secrets? Bush administration officials have admitted that torture, including waterboarding (almost drowning) was used often, against detainees in various hidden prisons around the world. There should be no secrecy but rather full disclosure of all the facts around the torture flights. All participants—government agencies, corporations like Jeppesen, and individuals who planned and carried out the torture—must be held accountable.
