Polish ex-intelligence official says time for truth on CIA jail

CIA jail polandPoland's official stance of denying it hosted a secret CIA jail is harming its reputation and it needs to be frank about what really happened, a senior intelligence official at the time the alleged prison was operating told Reuters.

A growing weight of information gathered by rights groups, lawyers and parliamentary inquiries suggests that Poland allowed its NATO ally the United States from around 2003 to detain al Qaeda suspects in a facility in a northern Polish forest.

Human rights campaigners say Poland was part of a network of states involved in the CIA's "extraordinary rendition" program after the September 11, 2001 attacks on U.S. cities by al Qaeda.

If any state officially acknowledges a role -- and activists say Poland is the most likely to do so -- that could lead to prosecutions of officials and to governments being forced to reveal details of sensitive dealings with U.S. intelligence.
