Invisible Prisons

Quote:
BRUSSELS — Investigations into reports that US agents shipped prisoners through European airports to secret detention centers have produced no evidence of illegal CIA activities, the European Union’s antiterrorism coordinator said yesterday.

The investigations also have not turned up any proof of secret renditions of terror suspects on EU territory, Gijs de Vries told a European Parliament committee investigating the allegations.

The European Parliament’s probe and a similar one by the continent’s leading human rights watchdog are looking into whether US intelligence agents interrogated Al Qaeda suspects at secret prisons in Eastern Europe and transported some on secret flights through Europe.

But so far investigators have not identified any human rights violations, despite more than 50 hours of testimony by human rights activists and individuals who said they were abducted by US intelligence agents, de Vries said.

That either the CIA is able to keep their secrets and that there is an absence of evidence for the claims made last year.

I think that it is probably somewhere in the middle, the CIA has proven itself to be inept on quite a few occasions but it could probably embark on rendition operations and keep them under wraps - but it would need to be limited scale or else it would leak out ivery quickly.

As for the claims being made they deserve scrutiny and should not be taken at face value, a case similar to this would be the man claiming to be "the guy" on the box who thought he was wired up in Abu Ghraib who's story was put out only to be proven wrong by the facts.

Everyone has an agenda, and most people are stupid.

CIA Fires Analyst for Alleged Press Leak

By KATHERINE SHRADER
The Associated Press
Saturday, April 22, 2006; 1:11 PM

WASHINGTON -- The CIA fired a top intelligence analyst who admitted leaking classified information that led to a Pulitzer Prize-winning story about a network of secret CIA prisons, government officials say.

The officer was a senior analyst nearing retirement, Mary McCarthy, The Associated Press learned. Reached Friday evening at home, her husband would not confirm her firing.
