Court finds Poland complicit in CIA ‘torture'

6 posts in this topic

Europe’s top human rights court ruled Thursday that Poland allowed the CIA to detain two terrorism suspects at a secret prison on its territory where they were exposed to “torture and inhuman or degrading treatment.”

In a 400-page ruling, the European Court of Human Rights said Poland violated the European Convention on Human Rights and failed to properly investigate what had happened to Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a Saudi national, and Abu Zubaydah, a Palestinian born in Saudi Arabia, while they were in CIA custody.

The CIA brought a number of suspected al-Qaeda members to the prison, including Zubaydah, Nashiri and Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the self-admitted mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. While imprisoned on a military base in northern Poland, a pair of CIA contractors waterboarded Mohammed 183 times. A CIA operative also subjected Nashiri to a mock execution and put a drill to the head of the blindfolded man, according to several former CIA officials and a report by the agency’s inspector general.

they do seem to have been bending over backwards to do whatever Uncle Sam wants them to, including the stationing of US missiles that can easily reach Russia, which is yet another of the things that NATO has done that's not provocative in any way at all, of course.

(red: my correction) After not getting anything out of either the engagement in Iraq nor the help for the CIA that has cooled down a lot.

Now getting a bill will not make them very eager for future help for BB.

And when exactly is the US being punished for their numerous crimes against humanity? Punishing enablers is good, getting to the source is a lot better, although they dont follow international laws anyways.
