3. CIA Black Prison Found In "Fancy Horseback Riding Academy"

One of the CIA's eight secret torture prisons was located in a horseback riding academy in an affluent Lithuanian suburb, a former intelligence official told ABC News. According to reports, the CIA opened in the site in 2004 in the wealthy town of Antaviliai, 12 miles outside the capital of Vilnius. While the prison was active, intelligence officers reportedly lived in converted stables, and prisoners were kept in "prefabricated pods" hidden within the academy's buildings. The prison was the third secret CIA site in Europe along with Romania and Poland and it operated until November 2005. Although ABC reported the existence of a CIA prison in Lithuania last August, the exact location wasn't known until now. After early reports surfaced, Lithuanian president Dalia Grybauskaite called for an investigation into the matter, saying that if the prison did exist, "Lithuania has to clean up, accept responsibility, apologize, and promise it will never happen again." The CIA, meanwhile, refused to comment, calling the reports "irresponsible."

Disgraceful! A stain on our country that will never fade.


No one is better at creating outrage over imaginary injustices or threats than the modern-day right-wing.

And no one is better at ignoring the real ones, than the modern-day right-wing.

I agree with the CIA, the reports are irresponsible.
