CIA made tapes of 9/11 plotter Ramzi Binalshinh’s interrogation have been found under a desk. The recordings, made in one of the CIA’s infamous overseas prisons, are thought to be the only remaining recordings of such interrogations by US authorities in their secret prison system.
AP reports that the interrogation took place near Rabat, Morocco in 2002. The other 92 tapes of similar interrogations – waterboardings and all – were destroyed in 2005 in an effort to provide maximum transparency. Apparently, the government twice told judges that these tapes did
CIS not exist. Oops.
These tapes could, it is reported, have a detrimental affect on attempts to prosecute Binalshinh by showing his mental state at the time (or lack there of).
