Tapes? What Tapes??

The CIA has destroyed two videotapes documenting the interrogation of two Al Qaeda operatives. They did this in the middle of Congressional and legal scrutiny about the agency's secret interrogation techniques.

C.I.A. Director Gen. Michael Hayden said the decision to destroy the tapes was made to protect the the safety of the undercover officers and because they no longer had intelligence value.

Perhaps they were destroyed because the C.I.A. knew it was engaging in illegal torture.

Perhaps they were destroyed because the Bush Administration would be in deep trouble if the tapes were shown to Congress.

Perhaps they were destroyed because if the American people really knew what their government was doing behind closed doors, they would be sickened.

When will they figure out that the "oops the tapes were destroyed" schtick has been done before?
