The CIA Officer Left Behind by Hillary Clinton

Sabrina De Sousa, a former CIA counterterrorism officer, is facing imminent extradition to Italy for her role in the unlawful rendition of a suspected terrorist, an operation she has long denied any involvement with.

In 2003, a radical Egyptian cleric named Abu Omar was kidnapped off the streets of Milan in broad daylight, by CIA officers assisted by Italian intelligence. Omar was then flown to Egypt, where he says he was tortured. In 2009, Sabrina De Sousa and two dozen other American officials were convicted in absentia by an Italian court for their role in the rendition.

Now facing a four-year prison term in Italy, De Sousa blames Hillary Clinton for failing to assist her back in 2012, when Clinton was serving as Secretary of State. De Sousa sent Clinton a plea for help, but she never received a reply. De Sousa has long argued that she had nothing to do with the rendition, and has appealed her extradition. But this month, a Portuguese court rejected her final legal appeal.

If De Sousa is jailed, she will be the first CIA officer ever imprisoned in connection with the Bush administration’s notorious “extraordinary rendition” program. VICE News traveled to Lisbon, Portugal to meet with De Sousa.

How the CIA Renditioned a Radical Cleric (Excerpt from ‘The Italian Job’)

Watch Full Length – http://bit.ly/1Pttu3c

Sabrina De Sousa is one of nearly two-dozen CIA officers who was prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced by Italian courts in absentia in 2009 for the role she allegedly played in the rendition of a radical cleric named Abu Omar. It was the first and only criminal prosecution that has ever taken place related to the CIA’s rendition program, which involved more than 100 suspected terrorists and the assistance of dozens of European countries.

But De Sousa, a dual US and Portuguese citizen, said she had nothing to do with the cleric’s abduction and has been wrongly accused. For the past decade, she has been on a global quest to clear her name. VICE News met up with De Sousa in Lisbon, Portugal — and other key figures connected to the case — for an exclusive interview about the steps she’s now taking in an effort to hold the CIA accountable for one of the most notorious counterterrorism operations in the history of the agency.

In this excerpt, De Sousa explains why she’s continued to fight this battle to clear her name for almost a decade, and tells VICE News why she thinks the charges against her are groundless.
