July 25, 2014 – The European Court of Human Rights ruled that Poland is guilty of torturing two terror suspects for the CIA. This was done at a secret prison in Poland.
The court ordered Poland to pay the two individuals tortured $135,000 and $175,000 respectively. The two are still being held in Guantanamo.
It’s been rumored for years that the CIA sent suspects to places like Poland, but it has been denied by the U.S. government. The location of these prisons is considered a highly classified secret.
This review was the first by the court that explicitly connected any European country with the CIA’s secret rendition program. The White House’s response was that it does not confirm locations of any black sites and insists Obama ended the program in 2009. Let’s hope so.
Rumors persist that, that is not true. An administration that defends the assassination of an American citizen without charges or a trial deserves watching.
