Washington Post: CIA admits destroying tapes of KSM “confessions” under torture; main 9/11 Commission Report pseudo-evidence permanently erased from historical record because it would be “devastating” to CIA.
“The 2005 destruction of 92 videotapes documenting the harsh interrogation of terrorism suspects at secret CIA prisons immediately prompted concern at agency headquarters that the decision was not adequately cleared and may have been improper, according to newly released documents….Jose Rodriguez Jr., head of the directorate of operations at the CIA from 2004 to 2007, sent a cable authorizing the destruction of the tapes.
“Foggo’s deputy wrote that Rodriguez thought ‘the heat from destroying is nothing compared to what it would be if the tapes ever got into public domain — he said that out of context they would make us look terrible; it would be “devastating” to us.’ ” (full story: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/04/15/AR2010041505854.html?sub=AR )
Why would the CIA think destroying the only alleged evidence for the 9/11 Commission’s version of events would bring down LESS heat than releasing this evidence? Clearly, if KSM and the 9/11 patsies were shown to be guilty, videos of them being tortured would hardly be “devastating” for the CIA. Unfortunately, the majority of the American public would probably applaud the torture. The only conceivable reason these tapes would be “devastating” is that they would show that KSM (or the feeble-minded impostor they claim is KSM) and the other patsies were innocent and tortured into false confessions, and perhaps brainwashed into believing the script drilled into them during the torture sessions. The only conceivable reason the release of these tapes would be “devastating” is that they would have made it clear that it wasn’t Arabs who brought down the three skyscrapers with advanced nanothermite explosives.
The Post’s story is a “devastating” admission that 9/11 was an inside job.
