The European Court of Human Rights ruled Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012 in favor of al-Masri who says the CIA illegally kidnapped him and took him to a secret prison in Afghanistan in 2003. The decision was hailed by critics of the so-called extraordinary renditions programs in the U.S. war on terrorism. (AP Photo/Christian Hartmann, File)
