The CIA is using old Soviet prison camps to detain terrorist suspects

In Soviet USA terrorists are kept in secret prisons outside of US borders to mitigate legal liability.

Washington Post reports that the CIA has set up a covert prison network in 8 foreign countries, including several Eastern European countries, to house top Al Qaeda leaders captured around the world.

It is illegal to do this within the US, which is why the prisons are run abroad. Some of the prisoners have been illegally captured on foreign soil, then transferred into these secret prisons.

Sounds exactly like what communist regimes did back in the day.
