Sept. 6, 2006 — ABC News has learned that President Bush will announce that high-value detainees now being held at secret CIA prisons will be transferred to the Department of Defense and granted protections under the 1949 Geneva Conventions. It will be the first time the Administration publicly acknowledges the existence of the prisons.

A source familiar with the president's announcement says it will apply to all prisoners now being held by the CIA, including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the Sept.11 attacks, and senior al Qaeda leader Ramzi Binalshibh.

The source says there are "about a dozen" prisoners now being held by the CIA.

Until now, the U.S. government has not officially acknowledged the existence of CIA prisons.


The Bush administration has come under harsh criticism for its handling of detainees captured in the U.S.-led military campaign to root out al Qaeda terror cells abroad.


Does this change anything? Highly unlikely, since they will still be in prison until the duration of this war. Whats changed in your opinion?


Sorry, my mistake, they are granted as protected from any punishment, not held as POWs or granted that status.

Its part of Bush43's desperate shenannigans to stop the steamroller of anti-Bush43 voters about to go to the polls November 7.

More like trying to placate foreign allies, then about U.S. voters who don't give a dam about them Al Qaeda members in secret prisons.

Many Europeans nations are appalled by this practice.

Yes, but that could have happened last year. I'm going to say to placate foreigners, 20%, to salvage GOP fortunes at home 80%.
