CIA papers reveal it ran prison facilities in Poland

 

September 10, 2010 - AT LEAST one secret CIA prison operated on Polish territory between 2001 and 2003, according to a newly published internal document of the intelligence agency. An account of the document by the Associated Press (AP) agency suggests prisoners were not only held there but tortured.

 

The Polish authorities have refused to confirm the story. According to AP, a CIA officer “Albert” (his full name was not revealed) was reprimanded and retired after practising inhumane interrogation techniques in the secret “black site”.

Among the interrogations reported is that of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the alleged mastermind of the 2000 Yemen attack in which 17 marines on the USS Cole were killed. Captured in Dubai, then detained in Afghanistan and Thailand, he was finally taken in December 2002 to the Polish-based CIA jail.

Here, according to the report, “Albert” put a bitless electric drill and a gun to the head of the shackled and hooded suspect. The improper nature of the interrogation was confirmed in a report from the CIA general inspector declassified last year, though neither the officer responsible nor the location of the prison were revealed. {read more}
