The ends justify the screams

Amid all the torture stuff, and the claims that Cheney and Rumsfeld were ordering repeated "interrogations" because they weren't getting the Iraq Al Qaeda connection they wanted, let's please remember that there were videotapes made of the interrogations of Zubaydah from that time, and that those tapes have been destroyed.

I'll mention it again, There were tapes of Zubaydah's interrogations that were intentionally destroyed.

"Tell me about the Iraq Al Qaeda connection." (Wham) "Tell me about the Iraq Al Qaeda connection." (Wham)......


  • You've got to figure that if there were any way that those tapes could have been spun to look like the interrogators were "keeping us safe", they wouldn't have been destroyed.

    It seems reasonable to assume that the tapes were more than a little damning.

  • Exactly.

    And now, with the newer context, I think they would have been even more damning.

    Just as a thought, whatever was on those tapes was known to be worse than the potential costs of destroying them which could have been prosecutable.
