Former Polish Pres.:CIA Ran a Facility in Poland; CIA Held, Tortured Al Qaeda Suspects at Facility

Former Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski said today (December 10, 2014) that while he was in office Poland agreed to a request from Washington for U.S. intelligence agents to use a facility on Polish soil, the Global Post website reports.

Kwasniewski said he was told by U.S. officials the facility would be used by intelligence officials to obtain information from sources who were willing to cooperate.

He added that he did not know what was happening inside the facility.

According to a U.S. Senate report published yesterday, the CIA ran a facility in Poland where Al Qaeda suspects were held in 2002 and 2003, and where they were subject to interrogation methods that rights groups say amount to torture.
