Poland to drop charges in CIA secret prison investigation


rt.com

Poland will clear its former intelligence head of charges he knew about and permitted the CIA to run a secret prison on Polish soil to detain and torture Al-Qaeda suspects, according to a local newspaper...It was said to be in a small remote village Stare Kiejkuty and was operational from December 2002 to the fall of 2003. It was used to transport suspected Al-Qaeda members outside the US territory to interrogate without having to adhere to US law.

I find this rather interesting. The CIA uses foreign countries to circumvent the laws and regulations of its own government and has for a very long time. The host country finds out about the illegal activity and attempts to put an end to it just so it can be dismissed and covered up. I am almost embarrassed to say I am an American when I read stories like this and it sickens me. It is no wonder the rest of the world hates us or at the very least doesn't trust us. The CIA is long over due to have a shock collar put on and the leash shortened but they just keep growing and committing illegal activities at home and abroad. There needs to be a massive public investigation in the name of National Security into the actions of this organization and any organization connected to it.

While I don't discount your feelings, I can relate, the CIA isn't doing anything the rest of the world isn't doing. Regular people do terrible terrible things to each other,mutilate and torture each other for not much reason other than they can. When it comes to enemies of my state I don't expect the CIA to handle with kid gloves really.

I don't know what the right answer is really, it's a complicated world we live in.

Thanks for the reply. I do understand the "Kids gloves" statement and I am not naive enough to think they will answer questions with the promise of an ice cream cone but the CIA has been acting outside the law for so long committing not only illegal acts but crimes against humanity to the extreme. They even get away with it inside the United States and that is FBI jurisdiction. The CIA in my opinion has never helped anyone but the criminals in the long run and basically in my opinion is nothing but a bully and an instigator for the upper echelon and it needs to stop. Countries that bring their illegal activities to light need to follow through and they need to be exposed for what they really are. I do understand the need for global intelligence but the CIA has historically over stepped their bounds from the beginning.

No doubt about it, but I believe it has been a long time since anyone expected less of a governmental agency. At least long before I was born, because I have seen mistrust my whole life. Literally, who can stop them?

More here - Polish Prison and the CIA

This is the part that probably worries me the most...though i really have to wonder what the danger in putting some of these cats in American prisons is. Sure, you might get some traitors, but what do you think the survival rate for terrorists is in a place like say, Sing-Sing or Folsom


At least 54 countries including Syria, Iran, Sweden, Iceland, and UK offered CIA “covert support” to detain, transport, interrogate and torture suspects in the years following the 9/11 attacks, according to a new report.
The 213-page report released by the Open Society Justice Initiative (OSJI), a New York-based human rights organization, documents wide-ranging international involvement in the American campaign against Al-Qaeda.


well that and the part about their President dying in a plane crash not that long ago...

sputniksteve would not have the knowledge to make the comment "I can relate, the CIA isn't doing anything the rest of the world isn't doing" - unless he was an Executive with the CIA.

That would also explain his statement that "regular people... mutilate and torture each other". I don't believe "regular people" do that and it's a demented attempt at excusing such crimes by the CIA.

It should not be "complicated" for government agencies to follow its own laws. Unfortunately, the countries they managed to bully into establishing such a prison will also submit to the pressure to conceal the crimes.

Since the CIA is supposed to work for "We The People", it should follow laws of The People. If they do, or do not, cannot be known - unless there is oversight by INDEPENDENT investigation, say for example, through State governments' appointments (which obviously is not happening). Whether or not the CIA protects national (meaning The People's) interests - at all - can also not be asserted, without independent oversight.

Ahh...now I understand why the US government insists on giving and spending so much money on foreign aid while the US can use every dime itself. It all boils down to money....again. Something like.... you drop the charges or I will cut the aid (also read investments) or will give you some more....

It isn't by chance that the CIA alsways get caught with illegal activities as such in poor countries. They got such countries in a economic stangulation grip.
