In northern Bucharest, in a busy residential neighborhood minutes from the heart of the capital city, is a secret the Romanian government has long tried to protect. For years, the CIA used a government building -- codenamed ''Bright Light'' -- as a makeshift prison for its most valuable detainees. There it held al-Qaida operatives Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11, and others in a basement prison before they were ultimately transferred to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2006, according to former U.S. intelligence officials familiar with the location and inner workings of the prison.

DID ANYONE notice the irony that the day after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton traveled to Burma to preach to their country about respecting "democracy" and "human rights," the U.S. Senate voted 93-7 to allow Americans to be detained indefinitely without any charges? Hillary was quoted as saying "any political prisoner is one too many." But the U.S. Senate voted to allow any American vaguely accused of aiding "al-Qaeda" be able to be sent to a prison for life without ever having to go to trial.

WASHINGTON, DC - SEPTEMBER 27: Lead representative of the Eastern Region of Amercian Postal Workers Union Fran Owens shouts slogans during a Save Amercia's Postal Service rally September 27, 2011 in Washington, DC.
