Bush Acknowledges Secret CIA Prisons

Ever slow to come around, President Bush finally admitted what the world already knew, the U.S. kidnapped people off the street in foreign countries, flew them to secret prisons and tortured them. OK, Bush didn’t admit to torture but he cited tough interrogation techniques.

Does this mean the German citizen absconded in North Africa’s case can now come to trial? The judge refused to hear it as it involved state secrets. Now that Bush spilled the beans, will a trial occur?

Bush bragged about the 14 successes, what about the known and unknown failures? How many died in those secret prisons? How many others were errors and released? As Porter Goss said while CIA Director, “we make mistakes”.
