CIA planned to ‘rendition’ suspects in Germany: report

Monday , January 11th, 2010

The CIA had 25 agents in Germany after the September 11 attacks and planned to “rendition” illegally al-Qaeda suspects without informing the German government, Spiegel magazine reported Sunday.

“It was about grabbing people without the Germans knowing about it,” the German weekly magazine cited an unnamed former CIA agent as saying. “We were planning stuff that was totally illegal.”

The plan went so far that other parts of the Central Intelligence Agency were in the loop, but in the end it was scrapped because of objections by the agency’s German section, Spiegel cited its source as saying.

“We said ‘no’ because we were of the opinion that you just couldn’t do a thing like that in a friendly country where there were so many US soldiers based,” the source is cited as saying.
