CIA destroys evidence, rule of law II
Posted by: Dale Franks on Friday, December 07, 2007

To update Jon's earlier post from today, it now appears that the CIA's intention to destroy the tapes were briefed to key congressional leaders...in 2003, two years before the actual destruction.
Rep. Jane Harman of California, then the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee and one of only four members of Congress informed of the tapes' existence, said she objected to the destruction when informed of it in 2003.

"I told the CIA that destroying videotapes of interrogations was a bad idea and urged them in writing not to do it," Harman said. While key lawmakers were briefed on the CIA's intention to destroy the tapes, they were not notified two years later when the spy agency went through with the plan. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., said the committee only learned of the tapes' destruction in November 2006.
This doesn't mean that the CIA was justified in destroying the tapes, but the relevant Congressional leaders were informed that the tapes would be destroyed two years before they actually were.

Hm....so Rockefeller has known about the destruction of the tapes for over a year? Why were the Dems sitting on this? Were they planning on rolling this info out in Oct 08 as an October surprise?
