Bombă lansată de New York Times: România şi filiera închisorilor secrete ale CIA

Fără nicio speculaţie şi niciun alt comentariu, mă refer strict la ceea ce New York Times a publicat în ediţia online de ieri, 12 august 2009, sub semnătura a doi ziarişti, David Johnston şi Mark Mazzetti.

Articolul se cheamă "Interrogation Inc. A Window Into C.I.A.’s Embrace of Secret Jails" şi îl vizează pe Kyle Foggo, fostul şef al celei mai mari baze logistice a CIA din Europa, cu sediul la Frankfurt. În luna martie a anului 2003, doi colegi din CIA i-au solicitat lui Foggo sprijinul pentru construirea unor închisori secrete, în care urmau să fie depuşi unii dintre cei mai periculoşi terorişti internaţionali. Foggo s-a pus pe treabă.

Textual, autorii articolului din New York Times scriu următoarele: "One jail was a renovated building on a busy street in Bucharest, Romania. Another was a steel-beam structure at a remote site in Morocco that was apparently never used. The third, another remodeling project, was outside another former Eastern bloc city. They were designed to appear identical, so prisoners would be disoriented and not know where they were if they were shuttled back and forth. They were kept in isolated cells."

"The Justice Department is now considering opening a criminal investigation, with much of the attention focused on the agency’s network of secret prisons, which have become known as the “black sites.”

"Mr. Foggo also met with representatives of Eastern European security services that had helped with the prisons. He expressed gratitude and offered assistance — a gesture the officials politely declined."
