Did Britain Cooperate With The CIA In Operating A 'Black Site' On Diego Garcia?

U.K. Govt Pressed Over Allegations CIA Used Diego Garcia As Black Site -- Al Jazeera

The British government faced renewed questions Thursday over whether the CIA has used the island of Diego Garcia, a leased U.K. territory in the Indian Ocean, to detain high-value suspects.

Prompted by an Al Jazeera report that published information from a classified U.S. Senate report, London-based human rights group Reprieve called on U.K. Foreign Secretary William Hague to release more information on the issue.

On Wednesday, it was reported that a Senate Intelligence Committee paper confirms that U.S. intelligence agents detained suspects on Diego Garcia, an island about 1,100 miles off the southern tip of India. The article cited two unnamed U.S. officials with knowledge of the classified document, which is set for declassification after an Intelligence Committee vote last week.
