Newly-Released Documents Confirm Bureau of Prisons Visit to CIA Torture Site in Afghanistan | 25 Nov 2016 | One of the many alarming facts that came to light with the release of the executive summary of the Senate Torture Report in 2014 was that the Justice Department's Bureau of Prisons had sent a “delegation of several officers” to Afghanistan to conduct an assessment an infamous CIA detention site and concluded the CIA “did not mistreat the detainees.” Senate investigators found that the bureau officers visited a detention site codenamed Cobalt north of Kabul in November 2002…In April, the ACLU filed suit to obtain documents related to the visit, which the Bureau of Prisons initially claimed did not exist. The bureau has now turned over several emails mentioning the visit — along with a written declaration by a senior Bureau of Prisons lawyer explaining the attempted cover-up. That declaration states that the officers were tasked orally, so that there was no record of their travel, and that the CIA forbade the two officers from producing records of or about the visit.
