Familiar Story: CIA Destroys More Tapes

By Suzanne Ito, ACLU at 11:01am

Back in December 2007, we learned that the CIA had destroyed two videotapes depicting the "harsh interrogation" of two detainees in U.S. custody. This morning, we learned those two tapes were the tip of the proverbial iceberg: the CIA has actually destroyed 92 tapes. Those tapes are directly responsive to the ACLU's October 2003 Freedom of Information Act request asking the government to release all documents and information pertaining to the treatment of detainees held in U.S. custody overseas.

We'll have more soon.
