    abductee refused court hearing

    Supreme Court refuses to hear claims of man from 4th Circuit case

    Associated Press - October 9, 2007 11:15 AM ET

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. Supreme Court terminated a lawsuit today from a man who claims he was abducted and tortured by the CIA.

    The court's ruling effectively endorses Bush administration arguments that state secrets would be revealed if the case were allowed to proceed.

    The case came from the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, which refused in March to reinstate the lawsuit by 44-year-old Khaled el-Masri. He alleged that he was kidnapped by CIA agents in Europe and held in an Afghan prison for four months in a case of mistaken identity. He has maintained that he wants an explanation and an apology.

    The administration has not publicly acknowledged that el-Masri was detained. Lower courts dismissed his suit after the administration asserted that state secrets would be revealed if the lawsuit were not blocked. The justices rejected his appeal without comment.


    USA might consider a consent decree, a million USD, and agree to the suit after the terror war.

    The Goodwill this would buy world wide would exceed cost a hundredfold.

    The world understands a mistake, error, and his release.

    The world finds it hard to understand the refusal of remedy for the error.

    It is expected he will be made whole in some fashion, after all it is America.
