In a ruling (AE80) made on 18 December and announced on 19 December, U.S. Colonel and Military Commissions Judge James L. Pohl ordered the U.S. Government to preserve any and all remains of overseas detention facilities utilized by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
 
The ruling is important to defense counsel as they believe the existence of, and activities in this prison network, may be material to the defense of their clients.
 
According to PBS's Frontline, among the nations where CIA black sites are said to have existed are: Afghanistan, Iraq, Morocco, Poland, Romania, and Thailand.
