Terror suspects' move out of U.S. defended

CAIRO, Egypt - In his first visit to Egypt, U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on Saturday defended the transfer of terror suspects for incarceration and interrogation in other countries.

Gonzales acknowledged the U.S. practice of sending terror suspects to prisons in their home countries.

But he refused to confirm reports that Egypt, whose human rights record has been criticized by Washington, had received any of the suspects.

Egyptian Interior Minister Habib el-Adly has denied that Egypt was torturing terror suspects from abroad.

Detainees have said they were transferred from the U.S. to secret facilities in countries including Poland, Romania, Jordan, Syria and Egypt.

Gonzales said that he saw no contradiction between the U.S. promoting democracy around the world and running a facility like the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where activists and former detainees have alleged that abuse has taken place.

"We have procedures in place to ensure that those at Guantanamo in fact deserve to be at Guantanamo," Gonzales said. "We're looking for ways to deal with terrorists other than at Guantanamo if we can. The U.S. has no intention and no desire to be the world's jailers," he added.
