Bush Admits to Secret CIA Prisons

prison.jpg Earlier today George Bush acknowledged the existence of secret CIA prisons that have been the source of tension between American and international critics and the Bush administration over the past few months. Among the detainees are Khalid Sheik Mohammed (Al Qaida’s #3) and Ramzi Binalshibh (a would-be Sept. 11 hijacker).

To justify the existence of the secret prisons, Bush was quoted as saying:

“It has been necessary to move these individuals to an environment where they can be held secretly, questioned by experts and, when appropriate, prosecuted for terrorist acts. These are dangerous men, with unparalleled knowledge about terrorist networks and their plans of new attacks. The security of our nation and the lives of our citizens depend on our ability to learn what these terrorists know.”

The claim that thousands of prisoners have been held was rebuked by a senior administration official – they only number in the hundreds – the people who are apparently not protected under the Geneva conventions, have never been given a fair trial, or are in any other way given the rights that any other civilized nation would extend to even the most hated of criminals.
