Extraordinary Rendition : the story of UnAmerica
c. Headhat 2010 and ReCaaLL the Albatross
DEFINITION: Rendition, in law, is a transfer of persons from one jurisdiction to another, and the act of handing over, both after legal proceedings and according to law. Extraordinary rendition, however, is a rendition which is extralegal, i.e. outside the law (see: kidnapping). As rendition refers to the transfer, the apprehension, detention, interrogation, and any other practices occurring before and after the movement and exchange of extrajudicial prisoners do not fall into the strict definition of extraordinary rendition. In practice, however, the term is widely used to describe such practices, particularly the initial apprehension. This latter usage extends to the alleged transfer of suspected terrorists by the US to countries known to torture prisoners or to employ harsh interrogation techniques that may rise to the level of torture. The Bush administration has freely admitted this practice; stating, among other provisions that they have specifically asked that torture not be used. Torture can still occur, however, despite these provisions, and much documentation exists alleging that it has happened in many cases. In these instances, the initial captor allows the possibility of torture by releasing the prisoner into the custody of states that practice torture.
These songs were created between 2001 and 2010. In many ways, they are not altogether politicized critiques, but rather a symptom of the times. I would like to send special regards to all the producers and featured artists. This compilation I dedicated to my homie Sylence DoGood, now served a 5-yr mando bid.

Special Thanks to Adhesiveslipper, Headhat, and Webhat.
Peace to BOS, TFD, and Paramanu.
