Tiny Torture Tape Update

By Ateqah Khaki at 2:10pm

As part of our Torture FOIA case, we were supposed to have received a few weeks ago a list of documents pertaining to the 92 interrogation tapes destroyed by the CIA. Not surprisingly, we didn’t receive anything from the government. We did, however, receive an order from the Court concerning the documents, which the government turned over for the Court’s review only.

In the order, the judge states that he reviewed “representative documents and information produced by the CIA relating to the destroyed videotapes” and orders the government to create a work plan for production of the material, beginning with an index of the documents withheld and an explanation for withholding, by April 9, 2009.

Stay tuned.
