The North Carolina Commission of Inquiry on Torture:

Seeking accountability for our state’s role in the CIA’s Extraordinary Rendition Program and justice for the victims of U.S. sponsored torture.

With guidance from locally and nationally recognized authorities on transitional justice and human rights, a proposed framework has been developed for a citizen-led Commission of Inquiry on North Carolina’s role in extraordinary rendition and torture.

On this website you will find numerous documents explaining the key role that North Carolina facilities played in enabling extraordinary rendition and torture during the “Global War on Terror.” See the Commission’s mission page to learn about our goals and intent, consider endorsing the work of the Commission, and learn more about how you can help to take a stand for justice, accountability, and transparency in our state and beyond.
