Abstract

Rendition is one of those words that bureaucracies craft to hide official monstrosities. As an artistic term, rendition means a performance of a dramatic role. Webster's 1913 dictionary defines rendition as the act of surrendering fugitives from justice at the claim of a foreign government. In its brand new usage, rendition has come to mean surrender of aliens.

Keywords: terrorism, Muslim countries, torture, rendition, extraordianry rendition, deportation
