"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The CIA has been holding and interrogating al Qaeda captives at a secret facility in Eastern Europe, part of a covert prison system established after the September 11, 2001, attacks, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday.
The Soviet-era compound is part of a network that has included sites in eight countries, including Thailand and Afghanistan, the newspaper reported, citing U.S. and foreign officials familiar with the arrangement."
This is one of the reasons Lord Cheney wants covert operators (those who aren't married to whistleblowers) to be exempt from the anti-torture bill recently passed by congress.
Cue Vader theme.
