Former CIA spy boss made an unhesitating call to destroy interrogation tapes

• Washington Post
The first and only time I met Jose A. Rodriguez Jr., he was still undercover and in charge of the Central Intelligence Agency’s all-powerful operations directorate. The agency had summoned me to its Langley headquarters and his mission was to talk me out of running an article I had just finished reporting about CIA secret prisons — the “black sites” abroad where the agency put al-Qaeda terrorists so they could be interrogated in isolation, beyond the reach and protections of U.S. law.

Remember this was done knowingly in contradiction to a US Federal Judge's order to preserve them.  And that feckless bastard did nothing to hold any government thug responsible for violating his retraining order blocking the tapes destruction. 

Now this taxpayer funded CIA criminal sells a CIA approved book boasting of his criminal activity.  A gang with a flag.
