I think I’m inclined to think that Larry Johnson knows what he’s talking about here: Who Obstructed Justice?
The key question surrounding torture tape gate is not who authorized the destruction of the tapes in 2005. Nope. The real priority is who in the Bush Administration knowingly lied to a Federal Judge in the spring of 2003. Either the CIA told DOJ the truth and DOJ lied or the CIA lied to DOJ or the White House directed DOJ to lie. It is that simple.
And it’s a felony. And it’s grounds for impeachment. Start the hearings already.
