Secret Prisons - but don't worry ??
http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/09/06/bush.speech/index.html

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The CIA operates secret prisons abroad for holding key suspects in the war on terror, President Bush acknowledged Wednesday.

Though Bush said the United States never tortures suspects, "alternative" interrogation methods are used to glean information from them. These procedures "were tough, and they were safe and lawful and necessary," he said.
=================

Let's see. People, including US citizens can be "arrested" in secret, held in jails that themselves are secret, denied access to legal representation - but the approach is lawful and we should not worry??

Where are our safe guards now from being a police state?
