From Alternet: CIA funds secret prison in Somalia
Yay! Nothing spells waking up on the right side of the bed like reading about new secret prison facilities being operated over our borders by American intelligence agencies.
While officially staffed by members of the Somali NSA, and guarded by Somali military units, the paychecks are all signed by the CIA, and American agencies control access to the site. Ostensibly established to combat a militant Muslim extremist group, and serve as a headquarters for counter-terrorism missions in the area, as well as a detainment center for those apprehended.
And so continues the ever expanding American military spirit of colonization. Let me ask you something objectively. How do you think our country would respond if some wealthy nation decided to set up shop and start running clandestine military operations out of our back yard? Why, I imagine we'd be pretty pissed. Pissed enough to start a revolution, perhaps. And probably establish early on after said revolution that our citizens would be free from the burden of quartering military personnel. Hmm...
Oh well. At least we know those poor Somali pirates won't go hungry.
Cock meat sandwiches for all!
