CIA Found To Have Destroyed Evidence of Torture

It looks like the Rose Mary Woods might have a descendant working at the CIA:

New documents show the CIA destroyed nearly 100 tapes of terror interrogations, far more than has previously been acknowledged.

The revelation Monday comes as a criminal prosecutor is wrapping up his investigation in the matter.

The acknowledgment of dozens of destroyed tapes came in a letter filed by government lawyers in New York, where the American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit seeking more details of terror interrogation programs.

“The CIA can now identify the number of videotapes that were destroyed,” said the letter by Acting U.S. Attorney Lev Dassin. “Ninety two videotapes were destroyed.”

Ninety two videotapes. Back in 1974 the erasure of 18 1/2 minutes from just one White House tape was enough to result in major outrage.
