Little Guantanamo: Bush's US blackout jails

Democracynow reports that,
With little public scrutiny, the Bush administration opened two secretive prisons in Indiana and Illinois known as Communication Management Units–or CMUs–that are designed to severely restrict prisoner communication with family members, the media and the outside world. Dozens of Muslim men are still being held at the CMUs as well as other prisoners including environmental and animal rights activists.
President Obama has already released details of the Bush-Cheney torture policies, but has granted an amnesty to those who were just following orders. He has also undertaken to close the detention centre at Guantanamo Bay. What other secret prisons are hidden around the world?
