CIA delays secret torture prison report


This video is called CIA Global Torture Network Revealed.

Another video, which used to be on the Internet, used to say about itself:

Did the CIA abduct, torture and hold men prisoner on European soil? President Bush recently acknowledged that the CIA has operated secret prisons. What happened in these secret prisons in Europe? Filmmakers Arnaud Muller and Steve Baumann conduct their own investigation around a European Parliament inquiry to help answer these troubling questions.

CIA delays release of secret prison report

The CIA has delayed the release of a promised 150-page report on secret prisons and interrogation techniques, according to a letter sent to the American Civil Liberties Union on Friday.

The report, originally expected Friday, was still being examined by government censors for sensitive material, the intelligence agency said Thursday.

“We are disappointed by the delay in the disclosure of this report which contains critical information about the illegality and ineffectiveness of the CIA’s interrogation program,” said ACLU attorney Amrit Singh in a media advisory. “We can only hope that this delay is a sign that the forces of transparency within the Obama administration are winning over the forces of secrecy and that the report will ultimately be released with minimal redactions.”

The report sought by the ACLU was originally released, albeit heavily redacted, in May 2008. The document, now expected on Friday, June 26, will likely be only slightly less-redacted.

The report on the CIA’s torture program, as released by the Office of the Inspector General last year, is available on the Internet (PDF link).

Unfortunately, that PDF link at the Raw Story does not work.

Several senior Obama aides have told the Washington Post that an administration task force is drafting an executive order that would allow for the indefinite detention, without charge or trial, of those the president claims are terrorists: here.
