Report: Many Missing From CIA Prisons or Guantanamo
"President Bush told us that the last 14 CIA prisoners were sent to Guantanamo, but there are many other prisoners 'disappeared' by the CIA whose fate is still unknown," said Joanne Mariner, terrorism and counter-terrorism director at Human Rights Watch. "The question is: What happened to these people and where are they now?"
HRW noted that in September 2006, 14 detainees were moved from secret CIA jails to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. On Sept. 6, U.S. President George W. Bush said that following that move, there were no more captives in secret CIA installations.
However, HRW said it had two lists of former detainees who were still missing and that it had sent their names to the U.S. president.
President Bush must provide a full accounting of those seized, held and transferred. Nothing less is acceptable.
