European Commission says two member countries dodging questions
The official, a high-ranking veteran with inside knowledge of operations at the base, said the planes then left for North Africa with their cargo
and two CIA handlers aboard.
His descriptions, told on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press, add to suspicions surrounding Romania's involvement in "extraordinary

the agency's way to outsource torture of prisoners to countries where it is permitted practice.
