"For more than a decade, a group of citizens in North Carolina have been tracking the inconvenient truth about how their state was complicit in torture," reports Joya Wesley. Following 9/11, flight crews from the Johnston County Airport-based Aero Contractors--a CIA front--transported suspected terrorists to "black sites" where they were frequently tortured. In response, citizens wrote letters to victims, pressed the government for an accountability investigation, and staged protests, including this 2007 demonstration outside the Johnston County Airport. "As a person of faith, I have to. Right?" said Allyson Caison of her protest against torture. Read the story in the September/October issue of Sojourners; link in bio.
