extraordinary rendition (s) (noun), extraordinary renditions (pl)
A U.S. government term for an extra judicial procedure that sends suspects or generally suspected terrorists, to countries other than the United States for imprisonment and interrogation: The victim challenged his extraordinary rendition in the international courts, alleging extreme physical pain and confinement.

Beginning about 1995, the Central Intelligence Agency inaugurated a form of extradition sometimes referred to as extraordinary rendition, in which captured foreign terrorism suspects have been transported by the U.S. to other countries for interrogation; often involving cruel treatment.

Another blow to America's self-proclaimed standing as a pillar of moral values was the revelation that the C.I.A. has been operating a super-secret network of prisons overseas, presumably for terror suspects. If someone who is innocent gets caught in that particular hell, too bad. The inmates have been deprived of all rights.
