According to military officials
and several intelligence officers the CIA runs a secret prison facility within the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba. Because the Gitmo prison is under
military control, the defense department requires the Agency to register the detainees and permit the International Committee of the Red Cross 'some
level of access'. But, while investigating the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, army officials discovered the CIA had held "ghost detainees" in the Cuban
facility, terrorists who were not registered at all, thus violating military rules. It is not clear whether the facility is still in operation today.
The buildings used by the CIA are shrouded by high fences covered with thick green mesh plastic and ringed with floodlights, officials said. They sit
within the larger Camp Echo complex, which was erected to house the Defense Department's high-value detainees and those awaiting military trials on
The facility has housed detainees from Pakistan, West Africa, Yemen and other countries under the strictest secrecy, the sources said. "People are
constantly leaving and coming," said one U.S. official who visited the base in recent months.

Great, so besides the military facility, the CIA also runs a prison there, CIA detainees probably have even less privileges, if at all. We've all
seen how the military inmates are treated, what a disgrace for a modern country.
