The US Central Intelligence Agency, commonly known as the CIA, has been known to operate numerous prisons worldwide. The media refers to those prisons as the “black sites” and the people who were sentenced to serve their punishments there are known as the “ghost prisoners”. The reason for that name is that people sent to those prisons were never actually charged for committing crimes. The “ghost prisoners” also get to experience the brutal methods of “enhanced interrogation tactics” which is just a fancy name for torture that includes sleep deprivation, beatings, torture by electric shocks, etc. Here are some of the places where it all comes to life, the same places you’ll never want to step foot in.
Diego Garcia is a small island situated in the Indian Ocean and is the part of the British Indian Ocean Territory. During the 70s, the US built their military base there that was later named Camp Thunder Cove. Last year, Lawrence Wilkerson, a former chief of staff for the US Secretary of State Colin Powell, admitted that multiple people were brought to the Camp Thunder Cove in order to be interrogated. He also said that the reason for that was terrorism claims and suspicions directly after 9/11 happened.
The Temara Interrogation Centre is situated in the middle of the desert in Morocco. Ten years ago, Amnesty International wrote a report stating that the Centre is very harmful to human rights. In the report it is also stated that the Centre has seen beatings, electrocutions, burnings performed by the CIA agents. The reason for such torture of the prisoners was to get confessions from them.
