AP Exclusive: Terrorist tapes found under CIA desk


rawstory.com

AP Exclusive: Under desk, CIA found video of 9/11 plotter being interrogated in secret prison.

The CIA has tapes of 9/11 plotter Ramzi Binalshibh being interrogated in a secret overseas prison. Discovered under a desk, the recordings could provide an unparalleled look at how foreign governments aided the U.S. in holding and questioning suspected terrorists.

The two videotapes and one audiotape are believed to be the only remaining recordings made within the clandestine prison system.

When the CIA destroyed its cache of 92 videos of two other al-Qaida operatives, Abu Zubaydah and Abd al-Nashiri, being waterboarded in 2005, officials believed they had wiped away all of the agency's interrogation footage. But in 2007, a staffer discovered a box tucked under a desk in the CIA's Counterterrorism Center and pulled out the Binalshibh tapes.

Justice Department prosecutor who is already investigating whether destroying the Zubaydah and al-Nashiri tapes was illegal is now also probing why the Binalshibh tapes were never disclosed. Twice, the government told a federal judge they did not exist.

It looks like they didn't destroy all of the tapes, as they were supposed to and now these two have surfaced. I wonder what they are going to reveal, if anything at all. Apparently, the CIA had kept these tapes a secret, not revealing them to the Justice Dept who is supposedly investigating the matter.

I want to know why these tapes weren't destroyed and are just now surfacing. Is it because the CIA wants them to surface? Do they have some kind of dis/information that the CIA wants to get out?

Something doesn't smell right. Does anyone else have any theories on these tapes? Was this just a simple mistake on the part of the CIA and they didn't clear out all of their incriminating evidence, or were these tapes supposed to survive then surface? Could these tapes be fake, designed to pump out disinformation? I would like to hear other people's thoughts on the matter.
