US "rendering" of political prisoners

I've just found a web site with more information about this "rendering" lark. While not quite as bad as it sounded at first, it sounds horrific enough.

One wonders whether the dysphemism arose from ignorance, or whether it arose as a secret macabre joke within the CIA, which leaked out. And I notice the news source puts it in quotation marks -- at least they seem to be doubtful about the acceptability of the term.
