Whistleblower: CIA Kidnapped, Tortured the "Wrong Guy"

So what happens if you kidnap and torture with impunity - more-so when you have the "wrong guy". Nothing - if you're an American! And they'd like to keep it that way, which is why they'd prefer to be kicked out of places like Iraq rather than chance being brought to justice by an independent tribunal. Fortunately for the rest of humanity though, the longest road eventually comes to an end and justice will in the final analysis be served, despite the continued coverup proposed by this former operative.

CIA Kidnapped, Tortured the "Wrong Guy," Says Former Agency Operative Glenn Carle

Rob Richer, the No. 2 ranking official in the CIA's clandestine service, paid a visit to Glenn Carle's office in December 2002 and presented the veteran CIA operative with an urgent proposal.
"I want you to go on a temporary assignment," Carle recalls Richer telling him. "It's important for the agency, it's important for the country and it's important for you. Will you do it?"
Richer, who resigned from the CIA in 2005 and went to work for the mercenary outfit Blackwater, told Carle that agency operatives had just rendered a "high-value target," an Afghan in his mid-forties named Haji Pacha Wazir, who was purported to be Osama bin Laden's personal banker as well as financier for a number of suspected terrorists. Wazir was being held at a CIA black site prison in Morocco, and the agency needed a clandestine officer who spoke French to take over the interrogation of the detainee.
Carle, formerly the deputy national intelligence officer for transitional threats, who had no prior interrogation experience, agreed, and within 72 hours, he boarded a CIA-chartered jet bound for Morocco.
