The Masri tortureÂ case against George Tenet was dismissed in court today.
U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis agreed with government arguments that moving forward with the case of Khaled el-Masri would risk national security by exposing state secrets about CIA activities vital to the U.S. war on terrorism.
“While dismissal of the complaint deprives el-Masri of an American judicial forum for vindicating his claims …. el-Masri’s private interests must give way to the national interest in preserving state secrets,” Ellis wrote in a 17-page ruling
