CIA-Style Black Sites Come to America, but As Long As We're Safe!

The logical conclusion to Dick Cheney's one-percent doctrine. So fucked up.

Will Fox News defend this? Will the mainsteam media cover it? Who knows?

This report of a CIA-style black site in the Guardian is truly chilling, but so inevitable in our post-constitutional, post-democratic, post 9/11 world.

“It’s not really a secret location, but it’s kind of a cloistered location,” said Richard Brzeczek, a former Chicago police superintendent.
Police on site, at the intersection of West Fillmore Street and South Homan Avenue, refused the Guardian access to Homan Square on a frigid recent morning. Nor did police respond to a list of questions its public-affairs office asked the Guardian to email.
Lawyers who seek access to Homan Square are typically turned away. But interviews with ex-cops, the few attorneys granted a measure of access, and one person who was detained inside for nearly an entire day describe an unusual, secretive police compound, complete with armored vehicles, surveillance gear and places to hold people for interrogation.
I'm not even being paranoid when I say we're fucked. It's going to be interesting to watch how this plays out. Remember, we thought Sandy Hook would be a turning point. Gun laws have, if anything, gotten looser since.
