The CIA's 'Black Sites'

What are we going to do with the secret prisoners who cannot be tried in our courts? Better question: How are we going to maintain our reputation in the world politic?
Liberty Beat by Nat Hentoff:

"These 'black sites'—as they are called in CIA, White House, and Justice Department files— escaped attempted congressional oversight until December 2005. But in the National Defense Authorization Act, the Senate finally called for regular reports on where those prisons are, what plans there are for the ultimate release of their prisoners, and 'a description of the interrogation procedures used.' Ted Kennedy and John Kerry introduced the resolution."
