CIA torture report fallout: Foreign leaders under fire for hosting ‘black’ sites
International Business Times - 12/11/2014
The heavily redacted U.S. Senate report on the torture and brutal interrogation tactics employed at CIA prisons around the world in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks has shined a bright light on the conduct of American officials and interrogators who participated. But it is also causing headaches for both current and former leaders of nations that let the U.S. run “black site” prisons where the CIA tortured terror suspects.
“This post-9/11 response to detainees was an international endeavor,” said Max Abrahms, a professor of political science at Northeastern University in Boston and terrorism expert. “It may have been spearheaded by the CIA, but the United States delegated out these black sites, and therefore other countries in the world are also to an extent culpable.”
