Is the CIA running secret prisons in Somalia?

Jeremy Scahill, The Nation: “We should say first of all President Obama campaigned on a promise to go up against these Bush-era policies declaring war on the world, running secret sites, torturing prisoners. What I found in my nine days in Mogadishu, is the CIA is deeply involved in an underground dungeon that is officially run by the Somali National Security Agency, but their salaries are paid by the CIA directly. In fact, one Somali agent described how the Somalis are lined up and paid $200 a month in cash by U.S. agents, and the U.S. is interrogating prisoners, including those rendered by the Kenyan government, snatched off the streets of Nairobi based on U.S. intelligence and taken to this secret prison and interrogated. It certainly goes against the president’s executive orders he signed in January 2009 and against then-CIA director Leon Panetta’s statement to CIA personnel the U.S. had shut down all of these secret sites.”
