CIA prisons in Europe closed in November

CIA prisons in Europe closed in November: ABC News - Yahoo! News:
"In an expanded report on its Web site, ABC News cited sources directly involved in setting up the CIA secret prison system as saying that it began with the capture of Osama bin Laden lieutenant Abu Zabaydah in Pakistan.

ABC said Zabaydah was first held in Thailand in an unused warehouse on an active air base. The report said after Zabaydah recovered from life-threatening wounds, he was made to stand long hours in a cold cell and strapped feet up to a 'water board' until he begged for mercy and began to cooperate."
