Nothing the Bulgarian officials are not aware of
Bulgaria approved an agreement allowing the United States to establish three military bases in the former Soviet satellite. The 10-year deal gives U.S. troops access to the Graf Ignatievo airfield in central Bulgaria and, close to the border with Turkey, the Bezmer airfield. Rights groups have expressed concern the U.S. CIA used similar sites in neighboring Romania as secret jails.
Washington Post"Nothing is going to happen on Bulgarian soil with respect to American forces that the Bulgarian officials are not aware of," U.S. Ambassador John Beyrle said.
Dana Priest: I believe the Eastern European sites were closed and moved elsewhere. I'm not entirely certain where.
