The Bush administration brought torture to Poland

America corrupts Europe

Der Spiegel has published a report documenting the presence of a CIA prison and 'special interrogations' — read: torture — center near northeastern Poland's Szymany airport. Fortunately the former communist county still believes in the rule of law:

Warsaw public prosecutor Robert Majewski has been investigating former Polish Prime Minister Leszek Miller's government on allegations of abuse of office. At issue is whether sovereignty over Polish territory was relinquished, and whether former Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski and his left-leaning Social Democratic government gave the CIA free reign over sections of the Stare Kiejkuty military base for the agency's extraterritorial torture interrogations.

Would the world's oldest democracy be so committed to the law as to investigate its villains…
