AP Exclusive: Terror suspects held weeks in secret

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — “Black sites,” the secret network of jails that grew up after the Sept. 11 attacks, are gone. But suspected terrorists are still being held under hazy circumstances with uncertain rights in secret, military-run jails across Afghanistan, where they can be interrogated for weeks without charge, according to U.S. officials who revealed details of the top-secret network to The Associated Press.

The Pentagon has previously denied operating secret jails in Afghanistan, although human rights groups and former detainees have described the facilities. U.S. military and other government officials confirmed that the detention centers exist but described them as temporary holding pens whose primary purpose is to gather intelligence.

The Pentagon also has said that detainees only stay in temporary detention sites for 14 days, unless they are extended under extraordinary circumstances. But U.S. officials told the AP that detainees can be held at the temporary jails for up to nine weeks, depending on the value of information they produce. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the program is classified.

The most secretive of roughly 20 temporary sites is run by the military’s elite counterterrorism unit, the Joint Special Operations Command, at Bagram Air Base. It’s responsible for questioning high-value targets, the detainees suspected of top roles in the Taliban, al-Qaida or other militant groups.

I think we ALL know, Democrats in general, and libbers all over this nation are, without a doubt, the most seriously challenged, mentally challenged, individuals that have ever walked the face of this earth.

Does anyone remember the OUTRAGE that the Dem/Libbers let loose against the Bush administration when it was disclosed that they had used ‘secret prisons’? And how the Dem/Libbers totally lost it when it was divulged that the CIA had maybe, possibly used an enhanced interrogation method called water boarding? 

The emotions exhibited by the Dem/Libbers was more than outrage, they were incensed, they were out of their minds, they called Bush and Company every name in the book and demanded that Bush free these ‘political prisoners’ and step down from the Presidency.

Now, I don’t hear the hue and cry of the Dem/Libber masses. They are strangely silent on this little factoid regarding the Obamanation having ‘secret prisons’.

The site’s location, a short drive from a well-known public detention center, has been alleged for more than a year.

The secrecy under which the U.S. runs that jail and about 20 others is noteworthy because of President Barack Obama’s criticism of the old network of secret CIA prisons where interrogators sometimes used the harshest available methods, including the simulated drowning known as waterboarding.

Dems?? Libbers?? HELLO?? Are you there?? Are you outraged now that your hero has been caught doing the same things that George W. Bush did? What about Guantanamo? Wasn’t that a big thing for you guys? Closing Gitmo and giving those poor, misunderstood ‘religious warriors’ a break? He didn’t do that either.

Where is the outrage from the left? Anyone?

Human rights advocates say the severest of the Bush-era interrogation methods are gone, but the conditions at the new interrogation sites still raise questions. Obama pledged when he took office that the United States would not torture anyone, but former detainees describe harsh treatment that some human rights groups claim borders on inhumane.

The duplicity of the Dem/Libbers, the utter hypocrisy, that is what has made the Democratic party the pathetic, un-American cretins that Conservatives believe them to be.

And quite frankly, the Republicans aren’t much better. They have their political correctness and the *BIG TENT* idea that says there’s room for everyone in THEIR tent. Well, there’s not. The GOP/RNC has turned into Dem Lite, and lately, I have to wonder just how Lite it really is.

The Dems have gone FAR left, very far to the left, and it appears that the vacuum sucked the GOP/RNC into the abyss.

BOTH parties are arguing over this budget fight and are threatening to shut the Federal government down. I saw an explanation somewhere today that equates the differences in the left and right regarding the compromise needed to keep everything funded as being the equivalent of a family making $100K a year losing it ALL over a $200.00 discrepancy.

Secret prisons, interrogation facilities and government shutdowns be damned, it doesn’t take a lot to keep an angry Jihadist alive while you pick his mind to pieces and leave an empty shell of a human behind. It’s not the Islamic warriors I care about, it’s the hypocrisy of the Democratic party, it’s leader, it’s members and Dem/Libbers all over the United States.

I just want to know WHY the Dem/Libbers aren’t screaming their heads off right now.

    I didn’t vote Dem, I don’t vote straight party ticket EVER, but for those that DO:

    1. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.

    2. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

    3. I voted Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

    4. I voted Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun,and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.

    5. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don’t start driving a Prius or buy Carbon Credits.

    6. I voted Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

    7. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits at my expense.

    8. I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

    9. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

    10. I voted Democrat because I think that it’s better to pay billions to people who hate us for their oil, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle or gopher.

    11. I voted Democrat because while we live in the greatest, most wonderful country in the world, I was promised “HOPE AND CHANGE”.

    12. I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted up my ass, it’s unlikely that I’ll ever have another point of view.

    A special THANK YOU to Lisa DeWitt for sending me the I voted Dem because list!

  2. Of course, the Dems and libtards aren’t screaming about this matter because a Democrat is sitting in the Oval Office.

    Frankly, I’ve given up on anything but the double standard from the Left.

  3. AOW hit it. It’s no problem simply because it’s Mr Obama and everything he does must be okay or, naturally, he wouldn’t do it because he always has our best interests at heart.

    This can not be Fred, you must be misinformed or you are blinded by your ideology of hate. I can not and will not sit here and allow you to berate our great leader like this…This is a sad day….

    (Please understand that folks in the most transparent Government may be reading this post, and I wouldn’t want them listening in our conversations.. Oooops. Patriot act… I mean, they don’t take people to Cuba anymore… Oooops… It couldn’t be that Military tribunals would be used on civilians… Ooops….WOW… Um Yeah :()

    If I all of the sudden turn up dead I DIDN’T DO IT… It was the black helicopters circling my house!

  5. TexasFred says:

    Rob — There ya go with that Black helicopters thing… What are you? A racist or something? Why has it always gotta be BLACK helicopters?? Haven’t you EVER seen a WHITE helicopter?

    Damn, that was hard to type, I was laughing too hard to see… :P

  6. BobF says:

    Has anyone noticed that not only has Obama kept intact every method Bush used to protect the nation against terrorists but he’s expanded them? The funny things is that Obama decried Bush for the very same things he’s expanding.

    How about this latest were the Obama regime wants access to emails older than 180 days which are stored on external servers without having to obtain warrants.

    WTF? Government Can Read Any Of Your Old Emails Without A Warrant?

  7. fiftyville says:

    The only reason the Duh-mocrats aren’t screaming is that in their heart of hearts and fevered little weasel brains they’re imagining those “secret prisons” will be full of Tea Party folks getting re-educated within an inch of their lives when their hoped-for socialist revolution of the masses finally happens.
