Just how many of these special camps did the CIA run? Maybe some were run by the secret services of America’s allies?

It was alleged that prisoners were sent to prisons in Libya, to be interrogated (tortured) by the West’s former good buddy Muammar Gaddafi. And those prisoner transfers only ended just a few months before NATO decided to bomb Muammar Gaddafi’s government instead of being good buddies.

The ruling of the tribunal in Strasbourg on CIA jails is embarrassing for Poland and is a burden both in terms of our country’s finances as well as its image,” said Joanna Trzaska-Wieczorek, a spokeswoman for the Polish president.”

Is this a news item that has any significance for the world, at all? It reads more like a brief by a lawyer for a major criminal who is or was being held in prison somewhere other than in Poland. ACLU-type money raising ads should not be posted as news items.
