CIA sources confirmed secret prisons in Romania, Poland

BUCHAREST DAILY NEWS: "A European official investigating the alleged CIA secret prisons, Dick Marty, said it is possible for the government not to have known about the detention facilities, pointing the finger at the intelligence services.
The German daily Handelsblatt, quoted by Der Spiegel, reported on Friday that sources within the CIA have confirmed that two CIA secret prisons are located in Romania and Poland. According to weekly Euobserver, Handelsblatt also reported that CIA is still using European airports for stop-overs on flights carrying terrorist suspects."

Man, you think you know someone, and invite him over to the House and then he turns around and does something like this.

The report suggests that European airports are still facilitating the transport of suspected terrorists by the CIA to the Guantanamo Bay camp, or possibly to alleged secret prisons somewhere in Eastern Europe.

Indeed, citing the need to combat terrorism, the administration has argued, with varying degrees of success, that judges should have essentially no role in reviewing its decisions. The change in Mr. Padilla's status, just days before the government's legal papers were due in his appeal to the Supreme Court, suggested to many legal observers that the administration wanted to keep the court out of the case.

"The position of the executive branch," said Eric M. Freedman, a law professor at Hofstra University who has consulted with lawyers for several detainees, "is that it can be judge, jury and executioner."

The government says a secret and unilateral decision-making process is necessary because of the nature of the evidence it deals with. Officials described the approach as a practical one that weighs a mix of often-sensitive factors.

Which in my mind is getting the point of "More Scary than Terrorism". There are somethings that are wrong.. no matter how you justify the actions, or layout the plan, there comes a time when you have to decide what is Right and what is Convienent. Basically the actions of the White House are justifying the actions and methods of the Terrorists they are fighting against. The tactics are now the same, and the results, therefore, will be the same as well. Insanity is often described as doing the same the over and over and expecting different results. What we see here is a plain insanity.
