CIA Provides Documentation of Presidential Order on Detention Facilities Abroad

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on November 14, 2006

Press release: “In response to an ongoing lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, the CIA has acknowledged the existence of two documents authorizing it to detain and interrogate terrorism suspects overseas. For more than two years, the CIA had refused to either deny or confirm the existence of the documents and had argued in court that doing so could jeopardize national security.”
