These “black sites” are named as such for several reasons: First of all, what they’re doing at these sites is essentially illegal. Detaining, torturing, and “interrogating” suspected terrorists using “enhanced techniques” (such as forced drugging, waterboarding, beatings, and even genital mutilation) has been deemed as a “war crime” by the UN, and no amount of perceived threats of terrorism the West has tried to force down the throats of its’ citizens will ever change that. Good people don’t support torture, no matter what.

Secondly, it is no longer in these foreign countries’ interest to play the game with us or cover for our crimes in this way. They certainly don’t want to bring on terror attacks or foment terror activity in their own countries by being seen as “playing along” with these policies. The game is over, and the Bush-era policies of “extraordinary rendition” are no longer being accepted – through bribery or other means – by the rest of the world, so the Obama administration has decided to move the sites to a more “secure” location – U.S. ships. According to the Associated Press:

Instead of sending suspected terrorists to Guantanamo Bay or secret CIA ‘‘black’’ sites for interrogation, the Obama administration is questioning terrorists for as long as it takes aboard U.S. naval vessels…

By holding people in secret prisons, known as black sites, the CIA was able to question them over long periods, using the harshest interrogation tactics, without giving them access to lawyers. Obama came to office without a ready replacement for those secret prisons. The concern was that if a terrorist was sent directly to court, the government might never know what intelligence he had. With the black sites closed and Obama refusing to send more people to the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, it wasn’t obvious where the U.S. would hold people for interrogation.

And that’s where the warships came in.

On Saturday, the Army’s Delta Force and Libyan operatives captured al-Libi in a raid. A team of U.S. investigators from the military, intelligence agencies and the Justice Department has been sent to question him on board the San Antonio, two law enforcement officials told The Associated Press. The San Antonio was in the Mediterranean as part of the fleet preparing for now-canceled strikes on Syria last month.

Well, at least they found a use for all those warships they hastily sent over to invade Syria, huh?
