Call Off the Dogs… White House Advised CIA Not to Destroy Tapes

Bum Deal.
The White House advised the CIA not to destroy the interrogation tapes of two Al-Qaeda killers but the CIA destroyed the tapes anyway.
Prairie Pundit has the latest on this from The New York Times.
Money quote:

White House and Justice Department officials, along with senior members of Congress, advised the Central Intelligence Agency in 2003 against a plan to destroy hundreds of hours of videotapes showing the interrogations of two operatives of Al Qaeda, government officials said Friday.

It looks like this won’t be the news that topples the Bush Regime after all.

It’s also interesting that the CIA tapes were destroyed to protect the safety of undercover officers if the tapes were ever leaked. It’s pretty sad when a secret service organization has become so partisan that they can’t trust themselves to keep a secret.
The CIA is in sad shape.

It is telling that only 18% of Americans agree with the latest intelligence estimate on Iran- via Instapundit.
