For the first time, Stephen Grey tells the inside story of
international prisons sanctioned by the U.S. Government and
used by the CIA to hold and torture people suspected of
Using contacts deep inside the U.S. Government, Grey reveals
how deeply the Bush administration is involved in the
program and questions the truth of statements made by
Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice. He also shines a
spotlight on the heads of European nations who turned a
blind eye to the program when it showed up in their back
yards. Grey takes an unflinching look at a horrendous
practice that scorns Geneva Convention rules and is powered
by corruption at the highest levels of governments worldwide.
Through his unprecedented access to CIA flight records and
dozens of sources at the senior levels of the current
administration, Grey has produced a story of flight plans,
extreme torture, and the clash of religions and governmental
posturing that goes on today. Ghost Plane tells the stories
of individuals abducted at airports around the world and
transported for interrogation and torture on a fleet of
leased planes manned by CIA operatives.
Grey paints a disburing ethical picture of the war on terror
and lays the responsibility for abduction and torutre at the
doorstep of Washington, D.C.
