It has been more or less an established fact that the CIA operated a “black site” for detention and torture in Poland for several years, but as more and more data continues to emerge, the details are shocking local rights activists and have the current government scrambling to save face and distance themselves from the past administration’s crimes.
Polish prosecutors say that the investigation has turned up a number of new documents, including a signed agreement for the establishment of the torture site, signed by former Polish spymaster Zbigniew Siemiatowski. Ironically, the document did not include any signatures from the US side, “because they do not want to sign documents inconsistent with their own Constitution and international law.”
It has also emerged that the CIA hired a local contractor to “build a cage” for the black site. Sen. Jozef Pinior, who confirmed the existence of a work order for the cage, said it would have been “non-standard equipment” for a prison, but not for one in which torture was being carried out.
The Polish regime involved in the torture site has blasted the revelation of its existence, with former Prime Minister Leszek Miller claiming that the media was “inviting terrorists to Poland” by making their past public.
