Where in Constitution Is CIA Absolved of Its Multitude of Crimes?

•, By Nat Hentoff

He asks: "Did any CIA agent get indicted for torturing people? No.

"Did any CIA agent get indicted for destroying the videotapes that showed the torture? No.

"Did any CIA agent get indicted for murdering prisoners in Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq? No."

As I've often reported, the list of the agency's wrongdoings is long, continuous and deeply documented in such books as "Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA" by Tim Weiner, and "Globalizing Torture: CIA Secret Detention And Extraordinary Rendition" by Amrit Singh and published by The Open Society Foundations.

And right now, many Americans are waiting for the public release of an extensive, carefully validated four-year report from the Senate Intelligence Committee on the history of CIA torture and its other crimes against our rule of law and the international rule of law.
