SourceAmerican Civil Liberties Union : ACLU Calls for Independent Prosecutor to Investigate Destruction of CIA Interrogation Tapes:
Says Possible Cover-Up of Potential Criminal Activity Needs to Be Examined
WASHINGTON – With the news yesterday that the Central Intelligence Agency destroyed at least two videotapes documenting the brutal interrogations of al-Qaeda suspects, the American Civil Liberties Union calls on Attorney General Mukasey to appoint an independent counsel to investigate, and if appropriate, prosecute any potential criminal activity. One of the tapes, made in 2002, purportedly shows the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, who U.S. officials have acknowledged was subjected to waterboarding. The CIA destroyed the tapes in November 2005.
I signed the petition. I figured if you read this blog often, you will want to at least give this particular website a glance.
