CIA hid many Iraq prisoners, generals say

The CIA hid "dozens" and perhaps as many as 100 prisoners from Red Cross inspectors at Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison and other detention centers, Army officials told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday. The new numbers, offered by Gen. Paul Kern and Maj. Gen. George Fay, dwarf previous reports that the CIA hid only eight prisoners, known as "ghost detainees," from humanitarian representatives. Kern and Fay also said the CIA continues to refuse to provide documents for any of the investigations conducted by the military into allegations of prisoner abuse. "The situation with the CIA and ghost detainees is beginning to look like a bad movie," said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. "Ghost detainees" are prisoners held incommunicado and kept off the prison’s books, a controversial practice that can violate international law. Reasons might include not wanting to tip off a prisoner’s associates that he or she is in custody or a desire to use tough interrogation methods that would trigger Red Cross condemnation.

"The CIA has been conducting a comprehensive review of the agency’s detention and interrogation policies, and this is one of the aspects of the review," CIA spokesman Mark Mansfield said. "We are determined to examine thoroughly any allegation of abuse." He would not comment on the number of ghost detainees, and he added that the "CIA’s inspector general will continue to cooperate with the criminal military investigators and appropriate authorities."
