    CIA hiding details of abuse and torture

    The CIA is refusing to hand over documents concerning abuse and torture. According to this article at the International Herald Tribune:

    The CIA asserts that it is protected according to the submarine case, in which a judge allowed the agency to neither confirm nor deny that it possessed records of a deep-sea mining project thought to be a front to recover a sunken Soviet submarine. The CIA has refused to acknowledge whether it has documents and photographs related to abuse of detainees.
    In the same lawsuit which is attempting to gain access to these CIA records, the ACLU successfully managed to get documents from the FBI which showed that Bush authorised torture, through an Executive Order.
