A former senior U.S. official tells TIME that at least one terror suspect was imprisoned and interrogated by the U.S. on the British-controlled island in 2002 and possibly 2003.

Source says U.S. may have also kept prisoners on ships within Diego Garcia’s territorial waters, which the U.S. has denied.

Former counterterror czar Clarke calls the claims “entirely credible.”
