Jun 22, 2014 - POLICE are investigating evidence that a CIA jet landed in Glasgow after carrying 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to a secret torture prison in Poland.
And the Sunday Mail can reveal that elite detectives are also probing five other stopovers in Scotland, which researchers suspect were part of CIA “rendition circuits” to move terror suspects between secret jails and torture sites.
A rendition circuit was a series of flights by a CIA aircraft, often leaving the US, picking up suspects from one foreign prison, taking them to another and then returning to America.
