Uh Oh

Sounds like the CIA has some splainin' to do. AP (12.18.07):
"A federal judge has ordered a hearing on whether the Bush administration violated a court order by destroying CIA interrogation videos of two al-Qaida suspects.

U.S. District Judge Henry H. Kennedy rejected calls from the Justice Department to stay out of the matter. He ordered lawyers to appear before him Friday morning.

Judge Orders Hearing on CIA Videos

"In June 2005, Kennedy ordered the administration to safeguard 'all evidence and information regarding the torture, mistreatment, and abuse of detainees now at the United States Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay.'"

"Five months later, the CIA destroyed the interrogation videos."

We're thinking you might have one pissed off judge here.

I really hope this is the beginning of some real investigating... We've been waiting a long time for this.

Man, I sure as hell hope so, though I'm not holding my breath.

I figured these clowns in Congress would have shaken a lot more stuff out of the trees by now. Instead, it seems like what's happened over and over again is Congress makes a lot of noise, has some hearings, issues some subpoenas, Bush and the Boys just ignore 'em or hem and haw, and that's it. Sigh!

Bunch o' bloody pansies, they are.
