The largest covert CIA operation since the Cold War is run not only by shadowy government contractors in the darkest corners of Afghanistan, but also by unassuming Americans in places like Dedham, Mass.

When U.S. civilian airplanes were spotted in late 2002 taking trips to and from Andrews Air Force Base, and making stops in Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay, journalists and plane-spotters wondered what was going on. It soon became clear that these planes were part of the largest covert operation since the Cold War era. Called extraordinary rendition, the practice involves CIA officials or contractors kidnapping people and sending them to secret prisons around the world where they are held and often tortured, either at the hands of the host-country’s government or by CIA personnel themselves.

How extensive is it? Trevor Paglen, an expert in clandestine military installations, and A.C. Thompson, an award-winning journalist for S.F. Weekly, spent months tracking the CIA flights and the businesses behind them. What they found was a startlingly broad network of planes (including the Gulfstream jet belonging to Boston Red Sox co-owner Phillip Morse), shell companies, and secret prisons around the world.

Well I am not surpised at all.

It looks like secret Detention camps are not only scattered all over the Middle East, Eastern Europe, but they are also found in United States of America.

With latest news, that there are around 14,000 detainees being held by the USArmed Forces somewhere on this planet, I think that the web of secret detentions camps AKA Gulags must be pretty big.

Any plane-spotters in here?

He is doing extensive tracking of the planes. You have probably at least seen him around. Especially in chat or aircraft forum.

wow that is amazing, seems americans soon won't have to be taken over sees to be tortured when we can just do it a block down from the book store. There is a documentary which also documents more than what seems to be 50 either detainment, Interniment, or torture prisons that are and have been built throughout the US. The documentary had the one reporter (from a news organization I don't remember but will try to look up) that had actually gone to some of these camps that the security who were operating their had no explanation for why it was there. The documentary was to say the least very unnerving, I will try to find it.
