Karzai: U.S., British Maintain Secret Prisons

The Washington Post reports that “President Hamid Karzai’s government is accusing the U.S. and British military of operating secret detention facilities in Afghanistan, a development that could further strain relations between Afghanistan’s leader and the West.”  

“After receiving reports about Afghan detainees at coalition bases, Karzai established a fact-finding commission to study the matter. On Tuesday, it announced that it had found six detention centers that run afoul of an Afghan law requiring all prisoners from the country be held in Afghan-run jails.”
