CIA chief sacked for opposing torture

Nat Hentoff in the Village Voice
The CIA's 'Black Sites'
http://villagevoice.com/news/0609,hentoff,72320,6.html


There has apparently been newspaper coverage of this in the US, but amazingly I find nothing on the major media sites like CNN or the New York Times. And of course, most of the articles in the American press made no mention of the "black sites" except for Nat Hentoff, posted above. The American press almost uniformly reports that Grenier was not active and aggressive enough on his assignment, and conservative sources actually seem happy that he's been booted.
