Such actions of the U.S. intelligence agencies were publicly condemned, including incumbent President Barack Obama when he criticized his rival George W. Bush during the presidential election campaign in 2008. The report of the "Open Society" says that prisoners without judicial decisions and relevant documents were transferred from one prison to another. Often, they were transported to countries where torture is not officially banned. Among them, the experts of the "Open Society" called Pakistan, Jordan, Afghanistan and Egypt.

The report contains information about 136 terrorism suspects have been transferred to the CIA. At the moment, this is the biggest list of those accused of terrorism, passed the American intelligence agencies, notes The New York Times.

Among the 54 countries that cooperated with the CIA, the two countries of the former Soviet Union — Lithuania and Uzbekistan.

He was kidnapped in the country, as explained by the security services, because of "mistaken identity" and was taken to Afghanistan, where torture was used against him.

According to them, the secret prisons were located in Poland, Romania, Morocco and Egypt. Human rights activists have speculated about the contents suspected of collaborating with al-Qaeda in detention centers in Lithuania, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Qatar. Then-President George W. Bush was forced to admit the existence of secret prisons, and the future of President Obama during the campaign promised to remove them. After coming to power, Obama issued a decree, and in April 2009 CIA chief Leon Panetta said that the disposal of the head of state is satisfied.
