AP NEWS STORY: National and Personal Security

I urge everyone to send Nancy Benac the truth about 9/11. She seems like an intelligent woman, but is sorely lacking the flip-side details about the loss of freedoms and due process. She would benefit hearing the words of lead counsel John Farmer and other members of the 9/11 Commission.

CIA whisked detainees from Gitmo

WASHINGTON — A white, unmarked Boeing 737 landed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, before dawn on a CIA mission so secretive, many in the nation's war on terrorism were kept in the dark.

Four of the nation's most highly valued terrorist prisoners were aboard.

They arrived at Guantanamo on Sept. 24, 2003, years earlier than the U.S. has ever disclosed. Then, months later, they were just as quietly whisked away before the Supreme Court could give them access to lawyers.

The transfer allowed the U.S. to interrogate the detainees in CIA "black sites" for two more years without allowing them to speak with attorneys or human rights observers or challenge their detention in U.S. courts. Had they remained at the Guantanamo Bay prison for just three more months, they would have been afforded those rights.
