White House: NYT wrong about CIA tapes

White House: NYT wrong about CIA tapes

Excerpt 1:
"The Bush administration on Wednesday called "pernicious and troubling" a New York Times article on the White House's role in the destruction of CIA interrogation tapes.

Citing unnamed administration officials, the Times article says at least four top White House lawyers took part in discussions with the CIA between 2003 and 2005 over whether to destroy videotapes of the interrogations of two al Qaeda operatives."

Excerpt 2:
"One source told the Times that some officials expressed "vigorous sentiment" for destroying the tapes. Others asserted that no one at the White House supported the tapes' destruction.

However, those same sources said none of the lawyers specifically told anyone to preserve the tapes, the Times reported."
