Allegations of a secret CIA prison in Poland are back on the front page. Polish politicians and secret services officers, speaking anonymously to the media, have once more been claiming that Al-Qaeda suspects captured in Afghanistan and Iraq were brought here for interrogation and may even have been tortured. A military airfield in Szymany in the north of the country and a nearby intelligence training center in Kiejkuty have been pointed out as possible sites. The suspects themselves are now being held in a U.S. detention camp in Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. Polish politicians of all stripes have faced accusations of covering up the existence of secret American prisons in this country.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov came to Warsaw Sept. 11 to meet with his Polish counterpart Radosław Sikorski and Prime Minister Donald Tusk. Both sides expressed satisfaction that dialogue was continuing despite the crisis in Georgia and the controversies surrounding the siting of U.S. missile-defense installations in Poland. Any talk of agreement or rapprochement, however, would be reading far too much into the situation. Neither side budged from its position or political assessments and relations between the two countries remain frosty.

The Economy Ministry has recently published Poland's Energy Policy Until 2030, a document which aims to comprehensively address the energy security challenges facing the country. Energy security is a particularly sensitive issue in Poland and in Europe generally. The government intends to have the energy sector rely much more heavily on national resources, especially coal, to increase the use of renewable energy, to develop competitive markets for fuel and energy and to reduce the environmental effects of energy production. Nuclear energy is also discussed.
