Last August CIA uploaded the file onto the office’s internal classified computer system and then destroyed the hard disk in what described as 'the standard protocol'. Yeah!The CIA Office of Inspector General (OIG), the spy agency’s internal watchdog wrote:The electronic copy of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s 6,700-page report and a hard disk were destroyed last summer.
Meanwhile, someone else in the office misinterpreted the Justice Department’s instructions not to open the file to mean that it should be deleted from the server. Both the original and the copy were both deleted.
Cori Crider, a director with the international human rights group Reprieve wrote:The destruction of the report is stunning. This is part of a bigger effort to remove the practices from history. One worries that no one is minding the store.
