“America’s Secret Afghan Prisons”: Investigation Unearths New US Torture Site, Abuse Allegations in Afghanistan

A new investigation by journalist Anand Gopal reveals harrowing details
about US secret prisons in Afghanistan, under both the Bush and Obama
administrations. Gopal interviewed Afghans who were detained and abused
at several disclosed and undisclosed sites at US and Afghan military
bases across the country. He also reveals the existence of another
secret prison on Bagram Air Base that even the Red Cross does not have
access to. It is dubbed the Black Jail and is reportedly run by US
Special Forces.
