CIA Admits To Destroying At Least 92 Interrogation Tapes

March 2, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – An ongoing criminal investigation into the detainee interrogations held under George W. Bush has unearthed new facts regarding the disposal of evidence.

According to a report released by John Durham, who is heading the investigation, 92 tapes have so far been found to have been destroyed, although under whose orders, it is not yet clear.

The amount is significantly more then was originally claimed by the CIA, which stated only a small number of tapes of interrogations were unavailable. They have changed their statement, and promise to find all remaining evidence to deliver to the courts, although they are quick to point out the possibility of certain omissions.

“The CIA intends to produce all of the information requested to the court and to produce as much information as possible on the public record to the plaintiffs,” a letter sent to the American Civil Liberties Union stated.
