Despite denials for years, former Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski admitted Wednesday after the release of the Senate torture report that Poland allowed the CIA to run a secret prison in the country, but did not authorize torture. Polish officials had denied the existence of such a prison for years. Kwasniewski was in power from 1995-2005. Reports had indicated that a site was operated in the country from 2002 to 2003, and human-rights groups say they believe at least eight terror suspects were held there, including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. “Poland took steps to end the activity at this site and the activity was stopped at some point,” Kwasniewski said on Radio TOK FM in Warsaw. The report issued Tuesday does not mention Poland by name.
