A Discussion with Accused CIA Agent Sabrina De Sousa

For the past decade, Sabrina De Sousa has been enmeshed in a Kafkaesque fight to clear her name in connection to an illegal CIA operation that has never officially been acknowledged to exist. Today we're hosting a Q & A with the alleged CIA agent, starting at 2pm.

De Sousa's saga began in 2003, the height of the War on Terror, when a radical Muslim cleric named Abu Omar was kidnapped from the streets of Milan, Italy as part of the CIA's extraordinary rendition program. Omar was brought to Egypt for interrogation, where he claims he was tortured by Egyptian authorities, and imprisoned for four years. What made this particular case remarkable is the fact that it came spectacularly to light in 2009, when Italian prosecutors charged and convicted 23 Americans for their role in the kidnapping.
