Commentary’s invaluable Gabe Schoenfeld is asking. Gabe has a new blog at the magazine’s website called Connecting the Dots. In a post earlier this week, he describes a Danish report about extraordinary renditions dating back to the mid-90s (yes, sports fans, rendition was invented by the Clinton administration). One of these involved a Abu Talal, a top operative of Egypt’s Gamaat al-Islamiya (the Islamic Group) terrorist organization, who was given asylum in Denmark, and was snatched while visiting Croatia. Evidently, he was rendered to Mubarak’s government … which may have executed him.
Scheuer is among the sources cited in the report. Was the information classified and is anyone investigating? Gabe is asking.
