Trash removed near NC home of alleged CIA firm

Posted: Updated:
SMITHFIELD, N.C. -

An anti-torture group is again clearing trash outside the North Carolina airport which has been home base for a company suspected of flying foreign terror suspects for the CIA to countries that practice torture.
    
The group Stop Torture Now is cleaning trash Saturday from the road outside the Johnston County Airport, home for Aero Contractors. The company has long been described as supplying planes for the CIA that took detainees to secret prisons where they may have been tortured. The company has leased facilities from the Johnston County Airport for three decades.
    
The protest comes after an independent review of the U.S. government's terrorism response after the Sept. 11 attacks reported this week it is "indisputable" the United States engaged in torture and the George W. Bush administration bears responsibility.
