Ex-CIA Officer Who Destroyed Waterboarding Videos

 The former CIA officer who ordered the destruction of videotaped interrogations which showed the torture of Abu Zubaydah and Abd al-Nashiri in a secret CIA prison in Thailand in 2002, says he did so because he worried about the global repercussions if the footage leaked out and wanted to get "rid of some ugly visuals.”
Jose Rodriguez, who oversaw the CIA’s once-secret interrogation and detention program, in his new book "Hard Times," writes critically of President Obama’s counterterrorism policies and complains openly about the president's public criticism of Bush's torture policies.
