Summary
"A growing body of evidence suggests US authorities are concealing investigative practices - including practices that may be illegal - by deliberately creating a different story about how agents identified a suspect or came across evidence of wrongdoing. Thanks to this secretive process, known as "parallel construction," people may be imprisoned without ever knowing how the cases against them truly began - or being able to defend their rights in court. ... [This report] - based on reviews of records from 95 court cases, hundreds of pages of government documents, and interviews with defense attorneys as well as current and former US officials - explains how parallel construction works and summarizes the available evidence suggesting the practice is both common and used by a wide range of law enforcement and intelligence agencies."--Page four of cover
