Sabrina De Sousa is one of nearly two-dozen CIA officers who was prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced by Italian courts in absentia in 2009 for the role she allegedly played in the rendition of a radical cleric named Abu Omar. It was the first and only criminal prosecution that has ever taken place related to the CIA's rendition program, which involved more than 100 suspected terrorists and the assistance of dozens of European countries.

But De Sousa, a dual US and Portuguese citizen, said she had nothing to do with the cleric's abduction and has been wrongly accused. For the past decade, she has been on a global quest to clear her name. VICE News met up with De Sousa in Lisbon, Portugal--and other key figures connected to the case--for an exclusive interview about the steps she's now taking in an effort to hold the CIA accountable for one of the most notorious counterterrorism operations in the history of the agency.

CIA , MOSSAD both work under the radar of foreign countries and pretend to be over the law, justifying the means toward their objective.

The control, the controlled opposition and the third rail...capitalism, communism, socialism....Judaism, Christianity and Islam...this is the military strategy in this Roman concoction...and you know the cornered rat will attack...the Vatican is the head of all military strategies for the last two thousand years..I guess you reap what you so.....

AS TED GUNDERSON X FBI CHIEF SAID, "THE CIA WOULD MAKE THE MOB LOOK LIKE THE VIENNA BOYS CHOIR" WAS HIS COMMENTS ABOUT CIA DRUG TRAFICKING, HUMAN TRAFICKING, AND SELLING ARMS TO SUPPORT THEIR POWER (ASK STEPHEN PADDOCK, OR DAVID FERRY AND LEE HARVEY OSWALD). THEY ALSO TRAFICK IN CHILDREN FOR THE ELITE!

after the FBI and the CIA allowed Hillary and Obama and Obama Administration go free after all their crimes i will never believe or trust them again

Why would anyone work for CIA or wants to help them in any shape or form. It’s the most evil and corrupt agency to exist.

This reminds me of Benghazi... When those soldiers who were security for the CIA Analysis..where the US AMBASSADOR was killed. Either wrote a book or the screenplay for the Benghazi movie.(For profit) under the guise that they were seeking answers as to why better security wasn't provided... And other complaints that they were trying to nail Hillary Clinton with....It was revealed in the last Benghazi investigation...that everyone was well aware that their was no rescue plan in place because of the type of mission they were on...The CIA chief said that they were warned that they would have to fend for themselves until the US gets there...

Al-Qaida is the name of some computer file uses by the CIA.

She can't even say when she joined the CIA...in the 1990s my *ss... Next plss

Abu Omar is a terrorist. Too bad Osama bin Laden and Al-Zawahiri weren't taken out back in the 1990s, and that would have saved 4,000 lives on 9/11/2001. This Indian woman is obviously lying.
King Pata
Lock her up in jail bomboclaaaat
She knew everything they all the same
Now she a parrot out like she eating carrots
Adriano Sverko
Why join CIA? This ain't a Hollywood movie. You are guilty for working secretly for a regime, a uniparty, that refuses to take it's own war criminals to the Hague. Do you understand who you signed up to work for?
Adriano Sverko
She should be in jail.
China Russia
Once a CIA agent, ALWAYS A LIER.
The very reason CIA 'uses' different Nationalities and Races IS NOT inclusivity, but because you can blend in with their target demographic ......which makes these agents, TRAITORS to their own kind,...after which you've gotten finished being used up to betray your people, IF EVER you should develop the pangs of conscious, you WILL BE ON YOUR OWN........because you've effectively isolated yourself by maneuvering yourself into a corner -- nobody likes or trusts a traitor, ESPECIALLY the CIA..........BUT they'll use you until your usefulness is at an end.
Rafael Alberto Brito
The look of her eyes tells she is a liar!

This Is How Easy It Is To Get Hacked | VICE Ex-CIA Officer Speaks Out: 1 day ago   15:27

Since the 2016 election, the notion of hacking has become inextricably intertwined with one country: Russia.

But cyber crimes emanating from Russia and Russian speaking countries have been around for years, fueling attacks like a 2014 data breach of more than 500 million Yahoo! accounts and a scheme that stole 160 million credit cards from American corporations.

"If someone wants to hack you, they're gonna be able to" former NSA hacker Patrick Wardle told VICE News. And if a Russian wants to hack you, they've certainly got the tools: A 2016 report by the Department of Homeland Security confirmed that 75 percent of all ransomware was created in Russia.

The apparent lack of ethical consideration in the buildup of Russian information technology and cyber security is rooted in decades of technical education under Stalin, who launched polytechnic schools to train engineers for his military-industrial complex. Russia's cyber capabilities can now be used for just about everything, ranging from digital bank robberies to tampering with critical infrastructure.

"This is the website of a big online store." Kostya, an anonymous Russian hacker who agreed to show VICE News how easy it is to steal digital data. "I can get into their configurations and download their client database."

Spurred by the trillions of dollars online and in a generation raised on the web, hacking from Russia and around the world is flourishing.

VICE News went to Moscow to see the country’s expert hackers in action.
