CIA would face hurdles to reopen ‘black site’ prisons, regardless of president’s orders | The Washington Post

The CIA was able to set up its secret complex of overseas “black site” prisons in 2001 only because it had legal approval from government lawyers, cooperation from Congress and foreign allies, and the ability to operate without detection.

None of those conditions exists today, making it highly unlikely that President Trump would be able to restart the much-maligned program even if he ordered it to happen.
