to the editor: In "C.I.A. Destroyed 2 Tapes showing Interrogations",
unnamed officials are quotes saying: "They were destroyed in part because officers were concerned that tapes showing harsh interrogation methods could expose agency officials to risk of legal jeopardy"
That legal jeopardy is the proper consequence of illegal actions.
My public servants should be more concerned with operating within the law, and less concerned with not getting caught. If the C.I.A. has been misleading Congress and destroying evidence of its wrongdoing, it is a scandal of the first order and a violation of the people's sovereignty, on which our government rests.
