Poland investigated claims of CIA secret prison
Katherine Bacher at 12:00 AM ET

On September 5, 2008, the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk announced that the Polish government would investigate claims that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was operating a prison in Poland. The alleged prison was said to be part of the CIA's extraordinary rendition program. The Legal Affairs Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) also accused Romania of hosting another secret CIA prison. The European Parliament scolded several European nations for their role in the US program.
