Here are Benjamin's five myths:

1. Rendition is something the Bush administration cooked up.
2. People who are "rendered" inevitably end up in a foreign slammer �?? or worse.
3. Step one of a rendition involves kidnapping the suspect.
4. Rendition is just a euphemism for outsourcing torture.
5. Pretty much anyone �?? including U.S. citizens and green card holders �?? can be rendered these days.
