Poland no place for US's anti-terror campaign

In exchange for 15 million dollars, Poland allowed the CIA to set up one of its key secret detention centres in the northern Polish village of Stare Kiejkuty in 2003 as part of the fight against terror, the Washington Post reported last Thursday. The left-liberal news portal Polityka Online doubts the existence of the prison: "Basically we know very little. Let's start with what we do know: after the terrorist attack of 9/11, the US began a retaliation campaign against the Taliban. Then they detained many suspects. And all the US's allies pledged to support it in its efforts. So it could be true that a military base exists in Poland. ... But 9/11 was one of the biggest traumas America suffered since Pearl Harbour. So it's more likely that the major operations against the terror took place elsewhere and under different circumstances."
