More on CIA cover-up of Abu Zubaydah interrogations

According to an internal CIA document released April 15, 2010, former CIA director Porter Goss personally approved the decision by one of his top aides to destroy dozens of videotapes of the brutal interrogation of two detainees, one of them Abu Zubaydah.  Read chapter 19 in my book, Why America Slept, and you'll get an idea of why the Zubaydah tapes were destroyed. And the CIA won't even acknowledge existence of any tapes for the early days about which I wrote in the book.  This is a cover-up involving the death of three Saudi Royals, the Air Marshall of the Pakistani Air Force, and questions about what some of our supposed allies might have known about the pending 9/11 attacks.
