CIA chief fired for opposing torture

This week Robert Grenier, head of the CIA counter-terrorism centre, will be fired. Vincent Cannistraro, a former head of counter-terrorism at the agency, will tell the Sunday Times that the reason for the firing was that Grenier "expressed misgivings about the secret prisons in Europe and the rendition of terrorists." Head of the CIA Poter Goss is also believed to have blamed Grenier for allowing leaks to the press about "black sites" in Europe on his watch.
