That's the rather Orwellian term for the practice of shipping U.S. prisoners to countries where torture laws aren't particularly strict. Today's Boston Globe reports on Premier Executive Transport Services, that is the owner of record for a plane known to have made 300 flights to such countries as part of the war on terror. The Massachusetts firm has a Virginia phone number and top executives who live in the D.C. area; the head of Premier's local law firm doesn't seem to know anything about the plane. There's more, and it's all shadowy.

"...The electrodes were put on sensitive parts of their bodies. It's no secret."
