Ah, The American Legal System!

Only in America:
WASHINGTON (World Tribune) — Boeing has been sued by suspected Al Qaida operatives transported by the CIA to Arab countries for interrogation and ["]torture["].

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a federal lawsuit against Boeing subsidiary Jeppesen Dataplan on behalf of three Al Qaida suspects transported by the CIA under the so-called "extraordinary rendition program."

The suit charged that Jeppesen helped the CIA transport the three plaintiffs to secret locations in Egypt and Morocco, where the company knew they would undergo ["]torture["], Middle East Newsline reported.

"American corporations should not be profiting from a CIA rendition program that is unlawful and contrary to core American values," ACLU executive director Anthony Romero said. "Corporations that choose to participate in such activity can and should be held legally accountable."
So let's see if we have this right. A couple guys -- guys who belong to the group whose major claim to fame was the seizing of four Boeing aircraft, then destroying them by crashing or attempting to crash them into buildings, killing over 3,000 Americans in the process -- are using the American court system to sue Boeing?

It seems the action is going just a wee a bit in the wrong direction. Wouldn't justice be better served if the proud engineers and construction crews at Boeing were allowed a few moments alone a room with these three guys to seek out a bit of retribution for seeing the pride of their work used as a weapon against their country?

And then, as if helping these immoral slug-brains out weren't bad enough, the ACLU pinhead said this:
"Without the participation of companies like Jeppesen, the [extraordinary rendition] program could not have gotten off the ground."
Well, duh. What would you have us do, Mr. Pinhead, transport them to Morocco by camel?
