The boyz at the CIA must of gotten a woody whilst watching the torture videos from Gitmo, don't ya think?
Once they realized what would happen if they fell into the 'wrong hands' they quickly destroyed them. What fuckwittery is this; "a step it took in the midst of Congressional and legal scrutiny about the C.I.A's secret detention program, according to current and former government officials". More from the NYT writeup:
The videotapes showed agency operatives in 2002 subjecting terror suspects — including Abu Zubaydah, the first detainee in C.I.A. custody — to severe interrogation techniques. They were destroyed in part because officers were concerned that tapes documenting controversial interrogation methods could expose agency officials to greater risk of legal jeopardy, several officials said.
The recordings were not provided to a federal court hearing the case of the terror suspect Zacarias Moussaoui or to the Sept. 11 commission, which had made formal requests to the C.I.A. for transcripts and any other documentary evidence taken from interrogations of agency prisoners.
Read the rest yourself..its so disgusting, I can't even deal with it right now. Processing this bullshit on a stick takes intestinal fortitude I don't currently possess.
