A National Security Council meeting in mid-August 2006 focused on the holding of detainees in secret prisons around the world. “The [Bush] administration had to close the secret sites, [Secretary of State Condoleezza] Rice said forcefully. They were doing more harm than good. America was a nation of laws, and it was important for the United States to bring the issue to closure, both on foreign policy and moral grounds.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
