CIA 'kept' tapes from 9/11 probe

A leaked memorandum from the former 9/11 commission says it made repeated requests to the CIA for information on the interrogation of al-Qaeda suspects. But ex-commission executive director Philip Zelikow says the CIA did not hand over tapes that have since come to light, the New York Times reported. The CIA later erased the footage, which allegedly contains images of abuse. ... The agency said the footage was deleted to protect the identities of agents and because it was no longer of intelligence value.
