"Clandestine ‘spider’s web’ of detentions and transfers"--Council of Europe

The Council of Europe released a report today titled "Alleged secret detentions and unlawful inter-state transfers involving Council of Europe member states." This report discusses the
CIA secret prisons and prisoner transfers in Europe. Presidential Press Secretary Snow reacted to the renditions of prisoners in his press briefing today, but did not comment directly on this report. The Council of Europe also proposed a draft resolution dealing with human rights, specificity dealing with transfers of prisoners and secret jails. For a fun graphic, check out "The global 'spider's web' of secret detentions and unlawful inter-state transfers." For analysis of these reports, check out the Washington Post article "Report Suggests Poland, Romania Allowed CIA Prisons."
