Backwards goes the CIA
If there were no secret CIA prisons, where was Khalid Sheikh Mohammed held before being transferred to Gitmo?
So when the CIA rejects the Council of Europe report, what does that mean? It's just sound-bite gimmickry.
Note that the CIA did not specifically say that no CIA prisoners had been held in Poland or Romania. And Polish and Romanian officials, being rather embarrassed, seem to be splitting legalistic hairs in order to avoid the charge.
Yet, because of these fake denials, we now have "news" headlines that make it seem as though the secret CIA detention centers are mere ravings of "conspiracy wingnuts."
How fast the truth is redefined...
