Secret CIA jails

Guardian | East Europe 'has secret CIA jails for al-Qaida' The CIA has been interrogating al-Qaida prisoners at a Soviet era compound in eastern Europe as part of a covert jail system set up after the September 11 attacks, according to the Washington Post. The secret facility is part of a network of "black sites" spanning eight countries, the existence and locations of which are known only to a handful of US officials and usually only the president and a few top intelligence officers in the host countries.

So ... our government has secret jails in other countries, and - as previously noted is advocating torture.

On rare occasion it might make sense for a government to keep secrets from it's citizens. Far more often this is simply a way to hide reprehensible behavior. Care to venture a guess which this represents?
