So I saw this article earlier today and was surprised I haven't seen it mentioned here today.
Apparently The CIA "inadvertently" deleted their copy of the Torture Report. Uh-Huh..
The “inadvertently” deleted copy contained 6,700 classified documents on torture techniques used on prisoners by the CIA following the 9/11 terror
attacks. Only about 500 pages of the report were declassified and released by the committee chair, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California), in
December of 2014.
Former CIA analyst John Kiriakou, who served time in jail for being the first to blow the whistle on the CIA’s use of waterboarding, told RT he was
not surprised that the agency is saying it had destroyed the copy.
Kiriakou was surprised, however, at the agency’s attempts to convince the committee that the erasure had been an accident.
“It is not an accident. You can’t accidentally destroy a 6,700 page document. You cannot accidentally destroy the electronic copy, especially when
these documents are numbered. There are only about a dozen that exist anywhere in the world,” Kiriakou said.
“Someone would have to physically go into the safe in Office of the General Counsel, pull out this document, which comes in many parts, it is so
long it can’t sit by itself, and take the time to physically destroy it. It doesn’t make any sense. It is not how the CIA works,” he added.
They deleted it and from what Kiriakou says, it had to have been deliberate because it requires more effort than a "mistake" constitutes.
He also had this to say about John Brennan
“Everything the CIA has told us about this program from the very beginning has been a lie,” Kiriakou told RT. “The CIA said they weren’t
torturing prisoners. That was a lie. The CIA said they were not sending people to third countries to undergo torture. That was a lie. The CIA said
they were not sending people to secret prisons around the world. That was a lie." “John Brennan [ CIA director]… said he did not have his
employees spy on Senate investigators. That was a lie. My question is why should we believe anything John Brennan says when everything that he has
told the American people has been a lie?” he added.
