"CIA removed terror suspects from Guantanamo to avoid due process: AP"

Jurist points to and expands on this AP story:

WASHINGTON — Four of the nation's most highly valued terrorist prisoners were secretly moved to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2003, years earlier than has been disclosed, then whisked back into overseas prisons before the Supreme Court could give them access to lawyers, The Associated Press has learned.

The transfer allowed the U.S. to interrogate the detainees in CIA "black sites" for two more years without allowing them to speak with attorneys or human rights observers or challenge their detention in U.S. courts.

Looking for a point of clarification here. The Jurist reports that Obama closed the secret prisons, yet the Miami Herald reports that in 2006, "Bush emptied the prison network". Is anyone aware that there were prisoners being held in "black sites" after Bush supposedly emptied them?
