Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Morocco is also a possibility. It is more "democratic" so it has "preferred non-NATO ally" status with the US, and is more likely to cooperate with the US.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?

Morocco also has a history of building secret prisons of its own, and a lot of remote territory (like Egypt) where a black site could be hidden away from prying eyes.

Egypt, however, is also flat enough in most places that they could have an airstrip in the remote location.  The Egyptian interrogation sites normally mentioned in news articles are known Egyptian intelligence facilities right in Cairo, but in those places the detainees would be in the custody of Egyptian authorities, not the CIA.  There are rumors and speculations about where a black prison might be located here, but no hard evidence that I'm aware of.

A few articles have metioned Libya as a possibility as well, but I also find that unlikely, although not for the reasons you'd probably expect.
