The CIA has been hiding and interrogating some of its most important al Qaeda captives at a Soviet-era compound in Eastern Europe, according to U.S. and foreign officials familiar with the arrangement.
The secret facility is part of a covert prison system set up by the CIA nearly four years ago that at various times has included sites in eight countries, including Thailand, Afghanistan and several democracies in Eastern Europe, as well as a small center at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba, according to current and former intelligence officials and diplomats from three continents.
Now I know why e.g. Poland (part of what the US government calls "New Europe") is so liked by the US.
-Shame on the governments of these countries for becoming henchmen of this inhuman US activities .
After the incidents in the known prisons Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo, I don`t want to know how they are treating the prisoners in a secret prison. And we are speaking about suspects, who never saw a lawyer or judge, and not every suspect is guilty.
-Shame on the US for this, anyway.
