First thing we do, let’s kill all the evidence

I can’t comment on revelations that the CIA destroyed videotapes of at least two “high value detainee” interrogations (despite same being requested by both the 9-11 Commission and by lawyers for such luminaries as Zaccarias Moussaoui) much better than the Heretik does here.
The reason seems obvious: the CIA wanted to protect its agents from retaliation by law enforcement international war crimes tribunals al Qaeda. Yes, that’s the ticket. Al Qaeda.
More proof for those who insist that the Bush Administration II is absolutely stupid and incompetent: when it comes to covering its tracks on its own crimes, it’s actually quite effective.
