CIA shuts down its secret prisons

BBC NEWS | World | CIA shuts down its secret prisons
The US has stopped running its global network of secret prisons, CIA director Leon Panetta has announced.

"CIA no longer operates detention facilities or black sites," Mr Panetta said in a letter to staff.
So the CIA tell us they're going to shut down their secret prisons...which they initially lied about...but this time they're telling the truth? By definition, it wouldn't be a "secret prison" if they told us about it, so if anything this only suggests that they intend to keep secret prisons? They just won't have any secret prisons that they tell us about.
