The Guardian reported yesterday on the Chicago Police Department's black site-- a place used to hold and torture people before they are charged... This is what we refer to as a parallel site-- as the men at Guantanamo have never been charged with any crime (except for the very few in the military commission). Seems the detainees in Chicago's black site don't have the longevity of Guantanamo (a few days of detention instead of 14 years!) but given time I think Chicago is up to the challenge.
