"In a major speech about the war on terror [on September 6, 2006], the president [Bush], for the first time, acknowledged the existence of secret CIA prisons around the world. He said 14 terror suspects held in them have been moved to Guantanamo Bay–and he's asking Congress to change the law so they can be tried by special military tribunals. The 14 include men allegedly behind the worst terror attacks against the United States, including 9/11. The President also defended the way terror suspects are being interrogated."
