The CIA destroyed videotapes that reportedly showed its agents using harsh and possibly illegal interrogation techniques on terrorism suspects. But in doing so, the CIA likely is in even bigger trouble, because it withheld and destroyed evidence sought in criminal and fact-finding investigations. The CIA destroyed the tapes after telling a federal judge that they didnâ€™t exist, and it also didnâ€™t provide the tapes or acknowledge their existence to the Sept. 11 commission, which had requested transcripts and other documentary evidence taken from interrogations of agency prisoners.
