“CIA Prisons” Author Claims He Had CIA Help

CIA dissenters aided secret prisons report: author

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Dissident U.S. intelligence officers angry at former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld helped a European probe uncover details of secret CIA prisons in Europe, the top investigator said on Tuesday.

Swiss Senator Dick Marty, author of a Council of Europe report on the jails, said senior CIA officials disapproved of Rumsfeld’s methods in hunting down terrorist suspects, and had agreed to talk to him on condition of anonymity.

“There were huge conflicts between the CIA and Rumsfeld. Many leading figures in the CIA did not accept these methods at all,” Marty told European Parliament committees, defending his work against complaints it was based on unnamed sources…

He said he had based his findings largely on conversations with “high officials of the CIA (and) highly placed European office-holders, who for different reasons, often honorable reasons, were ready to explain what had happened.”

Since he had no power to summon witnesses, subpoena documents or search buildings, he was forced to rely on such evidence, Marty said.

“The Americans themselves admitted there were secret prisons, that they abducted people from the streets, that people were handed over to countries like Syria, Yemen, Egypt where they were tortured,” he said.

U.S. President George W. Bush acknowledged last year that the CIA had held top al Qaeda suspects in secret overseas detention centers but did not say in which countries.

“The president of United States made a very important statement…, I think we can all expect … in the near future further admissions,” said Marty…

The report said former Polish national security adviser Marek Siwiec and former Romanian Defense Minister Ioan Pascu knew their countries had hosted secret CIA detention centers…

Pascu challenged Marty in the hearing to substantiate his allegations or withdraw them, but the Swiss legislator did not respond directly.

One suspects that if Mr. Marty got any help at all it was from CIA officers like Ray McGovern and Larry Johnson — and the other members of McGovern’s VIPS and Daniel Ellsberg’s turncoat groups.

Never mind that most of these traitorous frauds have not seen the inside of the CIA for decades.

They will say and do anything to hurt our country’s national interests and aid our enemies. As they have proved time and again.

“The Americans themselves admitted there were secret prisons, that they abducted people from the streets, that people were handed over to countries like Syria, Yemen, Egypt where they were tortured,” he said.

That is a flat-out lie and it proves that Mr. Marty has no regard for the truth.
