CIA Official Was Sure Someone Had Transferred Tapes to DVD

Washington – Jose A. Rodriguez, Jr., the former CIA official responsible for the destruction of videotapes documenting CIA interrogation techniques, said today that he was sure someone at the CIA had transferred the tapes to DVD when he destroyed them. “I was sure one of my aides had put them on disc,” Rodriguez told reporters today. “Had I known the tapes were the only remaining evidence of those interrogations, I never would have destroyed them.”

Rodriguez added that he only destroyed the tapes because he “hates analog” and wants everyone to move into the digital age.
