CIA’s prison in Poland & Human Consequences Fallujah
Torture is good for you, as you can clap for austerity ripping-off pension-funds, civil and human Rights, then attend installation of statism via police-state lack of protecting protestors of “fascist-Pigs” from the sidelines, in exchange of course, for police-Pigs beating on your neighbors, sons, daughters and workers needing to read more, anyhow—not to be priggish or any thingy-Bop.
There basically is no common sense to have wars UN-less always arguing about religion this and Religion that amounts to ”balancing food supplies” to the world which cannot measure caloric-Intake for impoverished children, and everyone who needs to eat (daily) who have just died yesterday, last week, the month before, the year before that and the pollution—from chemical waste, GMO terminator-Germ, viruses, NSDU-238 and Daiichis —plus, supple speaking out can and does accomplishment those specifics of knowing. Whereas, the disbelief: all predicated upon, what is peace when plutocrats beat you and everyone to the Conditionalism of next-step DNA re-Arrangement. Does that need plutocracy and those-Them re-Arranged? The need for hat-trick cause is the past and not present amer-Dream. Peace is needed. Therefore, why is not “peace-Gained”? “R”
“The Americans and Poles formalized an agreement that over the previous weeks had allowed the CIA the use of a secret prison — a remote villa in the Polish lake district — to interrogate al-Qaeda suspects. The Polish intelligence service had some more funds, and the agency had a solid location for its newest covert operation, according to former CIA officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the interrogation program, including previously unreported details about the creation of the agency’s black sites.
The CIA prison in Poland was arguably the most important of all the black sites created by the agency in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. It was the first of a trio in Europe that housed the initial wave of accused Sept. 11 conspirators, and it was where Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the self-declared mastermind of the attacks, was water-boarded 183 times after his capture.
Much about the creation and operation of the CIA’s prison at a base in one of the young democracies of Central Europe remains cloaked in mystery, matters that are classified as state secrets by the U.S. government. But what happened in Poland more than a decade ago continues to reverberate, and the bitter debate about the CIA’s interrogation program is about to be revisited…The treatment of detainees also continues to be a legal issue in the military trials of Mohammed and others at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. And in December, the European Court of Human Rights heard arguments that Poland violated international law and participated in torture by accommodating its American ally; a decision is expected this year.
“In the face of Polish and United States efforts to draw a veil over these abuses, the European Court of Human Rights now has an opportunity to break this conspiracy of silence and uphold the rule of law,” said Amrit Singh, a lawyer with the Open Society Justice Initiative that petitioned the court on behalf of a detainee who was held there… agency flew Abu Zubaida to Thailand, housing him at a remote location at least an hour’s drive from Bangkok.
The CIA declined to comment, as did Polish authorities through Poland’s embassy in Washington. Derlatka, the Polish intelligence officer, did not return messages seeking comment.
Several months after the detention of Abu Zubaida, the CIA caught Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri another wanted operative who had been tied to an al-Qaeda attack on a U.S. warship in Yemen. He, too, was taken to the Thai site…
On Dec. 5, 2002, Nashiri and Abu Zubaida were flown to Poland and taken to the site, which was code-named “Quartz.”
Five days later, an e-mail went out to agency employees that the interrogation program was up and running, and under the supervision of the Special Missions Department of the Counterterrorism Center (CTC).
Officials then began shutting down the prison in Thailand, eliminating all traces that the CIA had been there… Agency executives tapped Mike Sealy, a senior intelligence officer, to run the Polish black site, according to former CIA officials. He was called a “program manager” and was briefed on an escalating series of “enhanced interrogation techniques” that were formulated at the CIA and approved by Justice Department lawyers. These included slapping, sleep deprivation and water-boarding, a technique that involved pouring water over the shrouded face of the detainee and creating the sensation of drowning…
Agency officers clashed over the importance of Nashiri’s role in the bombing of the USS Cole in Yemen in 2000; the attack killed 17 U.S. servicemen.”
The hidden history of the CIA’s prison in Poland

Making headway w how to configure a NSDU-238 Radionuclides contaminated area, in Iraq, in Yugoslavia, in Afghanistan, in Iraq, in Libya—as well as how much on all the fanatic-penataGooons sites known a “proving-Grounds”—one has to assuage how much nuclear-contaminations are well over too much enough! The reinvention of not less radionuclides but an UNjust adjunctive addendum of sordidness as much in excess was discovered in Fallujah both 2004 one-sided ventures of usages nuclear! As despicable as non-cleanups was, the usages are totally against all laws—empire’s, United Nations, and natural laws of land mass no longer usable—at all. All told the conniving proves that openness was not the propaganda-Model, nonetheless. No analysis on Sept 11th was predicated upon the egregious-Manipulation by bully-Clyneton not to context—let alone confront the issue of mass-Genocide, mass murder of gHW Bushwhacky—nor to parlance that illegality for whitewash or black-Ops misshapen indemnities of anti-Humanitarian lawful abiding!
Shame on the new-Rome. Shame on United Nations Kofi Anon, and shame on the dumb-Fool new-Rome Congress. “R”
“In a follow up study, in which Dr. Busby was a co-author, hair, soil and water samples were taken from Fallujah and tested for the presence of heavy metals.48 The researchers expected to find depleted uranium in the environmental samples. It is well known that the US used depleted uranium weapons in Iraq during the 1991 Gulf war; and Iraqis, at least, are well aware of the increases in cancers and infant mortality rates in the city of Basrah, which was heavily bombarded during Desert Storm. However, what the researchers found was not depleted uranium, but man-made, slightly enriched uranium…
The role of ‘quick and dirty’ studies like this one, conducted under difficult conditions, is not to inform policy, but rather to generate hypotheses about important questions when resources are not yet available and other research methods are not possible.49 Dr. Busby’s findings are complimented by the work of Dr. Dai Williams, an independent weapons researcher. Williams has been investigating what he calls “third generation uraniumweapons”.50 He has found patents for weapon systems that could use undepleted uranium, or slightly enriched uranium, interchange-ably with tungsten, either as a dense metal or as a reactive metal. Undepleted and slightly enriched uranium have also been found on other battlefields (Afghanistan and Lebanon).51 These findings lead researchers like Dr. Williams to believe that there is a new generation of weapons being used, possibly by the US and Israeli militaries, that could have serious indiscriminate health effects on the populations living near bombing targets.!
One weapon system that may use uranium, in some form or another, is the SMAW-NE (Shoulder-fired Multipurpose Assault Weapon – Novel Explosive). This weapon was battle tested in for the first time in Fallujah during Operation Phantom Fury in 2004. It is a new thermobaric weapon that requires a reactive metal to create its high heat blast. But the possibility that this weapon system or any other could have possibly contributed to the current public health crisis in Fallujah has yet to be investigated.“
