Edward Snowden commented this week on the CIA inspector general office's "mistaken" destruction of its only copy of a top secret torture report: "“When the CIA destroys something, it's never a mistake," he quipped. The 6,700 page report detailed controversial “enhanced” interrogation methods deployed by the CIA at overseas prison sites, including waterboarding and sleep deprivation. The report's demise was never reported to the public, and only came to light after Yahoo News began an investigation. Another copy of the report exists on an untouched computer disk in a locked vault at the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virgina. Snowden tweeted: “I worked @CIA. I wrote the Emergency Destruction Plan for Geneva. When CIA destroys something, it's never a mistake.”
