The BBC says:

The CIA is running a network of secret prison facilities around the world to hold high-profile terror suspects, according to a US newspaper report.

Such prisons are, or have been, located in Eastern Europe, Afghanistan and Thailand, the Washington Post claims.

It says more than 100 people have been sent to the facilities, known as "black sites", since they were set up in the wake of the 11 September attacks.
The Washington Post quotes current and former intelligence officers as saying that some top terror suspects are being held in an Eastern European country in a compound dating from Soviet times.

Its report says the covert prison system, financed by the CIA, has operated at various times in eight countries, as well as at the US naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

"The hidden global internment network is a central element in the CIA's unconventional war on terrorism," the paper says.
The names of the Eastern European countries allegedly involved were withheld at the request of senior US officials, the Post says, for fear their disclosure could put operations at risk.

Nobody should be surprised that the US is running what amounts to a global torture network as part of the so-called war on the so-called global terror network. This is all part of the mentality of the thugs now running America. On the Channel 4 News tonight it was suggested that Poland and Romania might be two Eastern European countries involved. Now you would think both those countries might have had enough of similar tactics by the secret police under the Russians to now allow this kind of behaviour by the Americans on their territory.
