A recent memo by Philip Zelikow, the former executive director of the Sept. 11 commission, suggests the CIA was less than forthcoming when asked for documents and other information from the panel, which investigated the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
"Where there is smoke there is fire. We have a smoking gun, as it were, with respect to the government's destruction of potentially relevant evidence," defense lawyer David Remes said at a court hearing last month.
Intensifying the controversy, the CIA on Wednesday rejected criticism from the co-chairmen of the blue-ribbon 9/11 Commission after they accused the agency of obstructed their investigation by withholding sensitive information.
Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton wrote in The New York Times that the revelations about the videotapes "leads us to conclude that the agency failed to respond to our lawful requests for information about the 9/11 plot."
