Black site is a military term that has been used by intelligence agencies to refer to secret prisons, generally outside of the mainland territory and legal jurisdiction, and with little or no political or public oversight. Currently, it refers to the CIA-controlled facilities used by the U.S. in its " War on Terrorism" to detain suspected " enemy combatants", outside of the Intelligence Oversight Act which authorises Congressional supervision. The existence of those black sites was revealed by the Washington Post in October 2005. A presidential directive allows the agency to capture and hold specific classes of suspects without accounting for them to the public, or revealing the conditions they face in the prisons. The prisons are assumed to be serviced by the N44982, N4476S and N221SG prisoner transport planes, although there is no proof of the allegation. In this context, the term "black site" refers to a political scandal which came with the public disapproval of such sites. An investigation on the origins of the leaks has also been opened by the US Justice Department. ...more on Wikipedia about "Black site"
