CIA moved Gitmo suspects in 'game to hide detainees from the courts'


www.msnbc.msn.com

WASHINGTON — Four of the nation's most highly valued terrorist prisoners were secretly moved to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2003, years earlier than has been disclosed, then whisked back into overseas prisons before the Supreme Court could give them access to lawyers, The Associated Press has learned.

The transfer allowed the U.S. to interrogate the detainees in CIA "black sites" for two more years without allowing them to speak with attorneys or human rights observers or challenge their detention in U.S. courts.

Shell game is what the other headline said.

This is some investigative journalism that gives us more details, I believe, about CIA black sites and moving prisoners, a story that first broke in 2005. See additional news link.


The arrival and speedy departure from Guantanamo were pieced together by the AP using flight records and interviews with current and former U.S. officials and others familiar with the CIA's detention program. All spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the program.


It's good the MSM is doing updates to follow this stories. Maybe this time it will get more focus. It's a pretty detailed story.

Right.

From the 2005 news story (linked in the OP) on the black sites:


Although the CIA will not acknowledge details of its system, intelligence officials defend the agency's approach, arguing that the successful defense of the country requires that the agency be empowered to hold and interrogate suspected terrorists for as long as necessary and without restrictions imposed by the U.S. legal system or even by the military tribunals established for prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay.

Does this agency even have any accountability?
Who would challenge them or stop them anyhow?

One would assume they do...to someone somewhere.

The very nature of what they do sort of prevents transparency, but still. Thing is, we've know about this for over 5 years now? Maybe this will get some new focus on it. Last I heard, the black sites were still operating, but I haven't really kept an eye out....

Well it would be nice to think they do, I somehow cannot believe they answer to anyone but themselves.
Perhaps they can stick to importing coc aine.
