Freedom to Destroy Evidence

President Obama's administration quickly excelled at the Friday afternoon news release. The latest dropping highlighted the CIA's destruction of enhanced interrogation technique tapes. The Washington Independent reported:

The CIA has reportedly just confirmed — conveniently late on a Friday afternoon — that 12 of the videotapes it destroyed while its interrogation methods were under investigation and the subject of a pending lawsuit depicted the “enhanced interrogation methods” that detainees’ advocates were worried about.

Destruction of evidence? That's freedom.
