The CIA Must Tell the Truth About My Rendition At 12 Years Old.
Khadija al-Saadi was 12 years old in 2004 when her family was abducted in Hong Kong and taken to Qaddafi's Libya, where her father faced torture and death as a political dissident. The operation was organized by CIA and MI6 in cooperation with Libyan intelligence. Years later, the British government paid out a £2.23m settlement for its role in the kidnapping. An account of the operation is thought to be included in the US Senate "torture report" that is finally being prepared for release.
