US running secret worldwide prison system
Guardian UK |
"The United States government, in conjunction with key allies, is running an 'invisible' network of prisons and detention centres into which thousands of suspects have disappeared without trace since the 'war on terror' began... In Morocco, scores of detainees once held by the Americans are believed to be held at the al-Tamara interrogation centre sited in a forest five miles outside the capital, Rabat... In Syria, detainees sent by Washington are held at 'the Palestine wing' of the main intelligence headquarters... Egypt has also received a steady flow of militants from American installations... Terrorists have also been sent to facilities in Baku, Azerbaijan, and to unidentified locations in Thailand. Scores more are thought to be at a US airbase in the Gulf state of Qatar, and a large number are believed to have been sent to Saudi Arabia, where CIA agents are allowed to sit in on some of the interrogations... American officials are unrepentant. 'You have to break eggs to make omelettes,' said one last week." [And who better to emulate than Maximilian Robespierre?]
