US plans continued control of Bagram to hold kidnapped prisoners, 'security threats'

US plans continued control of Bagram to hold kidnapped prisoners, 'security threats' --Prisoners would be held in one of Bagram's blocks which would remain under control of US military 22 Sep 2010 The US military has drawn up plans to continue holding Afghan prisoners it deems a threat in a "unilateral" prison complex on Bagram airbase even after it hands control of the main detention facility to the Afghan government next year. US military authorities are expecting to retain control part of the existing Bagram prison to hold "security threats," as well as prisoners who were arrested outside the country and flown into Afghanistan on rendition flights, according to the admiral in charge of overseeing US detention operations in the country. "This proposal for a US 'prison within a prison' at Bagram reveals that the operative principle at the heart of Obama's overseas detention policy is to maintain a clear continuity with the worst practises of the Bush-era," said Clara Gutteridge, deputy director of the secret prisons and renditions team at the legal charity Reprieve.
