The CIA is to close down its global network of secret prisons, where “war on terror” suspects were subjected to harsh interrogation techniques, Leon Panetta, the agency’s director, has said.
Private contractors would also no longer be allowed to interrogate prisoners held by the CIA, Panetta said in a letter to CIA employees on Thursday.
“CIA no longer operates detention facilities or black sites and has proposed a plan to decommission the remaining sites,” Panetta was quoted as saying in the letter by the Reuters news agency.
Panetta also said that the CIA had told the US congress that it had captured no new prisoners since he became director in February and the “black sites” were now all empty of prisoners.

An insightful and shocking documentary about the secret prisons across Europe, where people who have been kidnapped from their homelands, are held without trial and tortured to confess to crimes. Crimes which will justify the US's Plan to dominate the Middle East and it's resources. Controlled by the CIA and in collusion with Western Governments, these prisons are said to be necessary to fight the so-called "War On Terror"
Well this is the problem with liars, once they start lying about torturing and killing people.. can we really trust them? Trusting the government is sort of like trusting a cheater. You cheat on your girlfriend, and she tells you, “Go to hell”. You come back and say, “I’ve changed.” Should she take you back?
Panetta says they’re closing the secret prisons and torture centers, but here’s the problem.. if they’re secret how are we supposed to know they’re actually closed!?
How do we know they’re not just renaming the prisons to something like, “happy camps?” Or perhaps not so secret, “Overseas Contingency Operation rehabilitation centers?” For those that didn’t catch on, ‘Global War on Terror’ has already been renamed to ‘Overseas Contingency Operation.’ The same way ‘combat brigades’ has been renamed to ‘advisory and assistance brigades.’ The government is full of funny euphemisms like ‘collateral damage,’ ‘civil disruption,’ ‘economic stimulus.’ Well I wouldn’t make a line to blow Obama just yet comrades. Obama has four more years as dictator in chief, and he has yet to get rid of all of those executive privileges that Cheney created.

This feature length documentary about medical madness, cloaked in bioterrorism preparedness, will awaken the brain dead. It exposes health officials, directed by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), for conducting a “War of Terror” that is killing millions of unwitting Americans.
This monumental film exposes the agents and agencies behind: Hollywood films and the media creating a profitable culture of bioterror; the “War on Terrorism” used to control populations; the most lucrative war in history—the “War on Cancer;” the onslaught of dozens of new immunological diseases and deadly flus; the “War on AIDS” triggered by contaminated vaccines; the anthrax mailings resulting in restricted freedoms, and sales of toxic drugs, deadly vaccines, and more.

Michael Ruppert is the author of Crossing The Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil. Published in September 2004 and is one of the three best-selling books globally and in the US about the attacks of 9/11. Rubicon is the only book to show that Vice President Richard Cheney, the US government and Wall Street had a well-developed awareness of Peak Oil before the 9/11 attacks and that US policy since then has been consistent with Peak Oil imperatives.
In May, 2006 Crossing the Rubicon was added to the Harvard School of Business library and released in a French version with distribution throughout all major book stores in France. Mike is also the publisher/editor of From The Wilderness, a newsletter read in more than 50 countries around the world. Its subscribers include 60-plus members of the US congress, professors at more than 40 universities around the world, and major business and economic leaders. Since 9/11 Mike has been in demand as a university lecturer and has spoken on Peak Oil and 9/11 in nine countries.
Recently, at the request of Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, he served as an official questioner during a Congressional briefing looking into unanswered questions and the unaddressed flaws of the Keane Commission report. Having concluded that the US government and markets will be useless in preparing American citizens for the coming crisis, Mike's current focus is on individual and community preparedness for the coming challenges and the development of a reliable news service to quickly identify and track breaking developments around the world.
