Judge Hellerstein: CIA can keep 9/11 videotape info secret

October 1st, 2009

A New York City judge says he won’t order the release of hundreds of documents the CIA has refused to make public regarding the destruction of videotapes of detainee interrogations following the Sept. 11 attacks.

Manhattan federal Judge Alvin Hellerstein ruled Wednesday after viewing a few of nearly 600 documents related to the CIA’s 2005 destruction of videotapes documenting new harsh questioning techniques.

He said a federal judge must defer to the CIA director in assessing information related to such an issue of national security.

The judge also said he probably would have ruled on the same grounds that the videotapes would not have to be released if they had not been destroyed.

A lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union says he doesn’t know if he’ll appeal.

    this judge is directly related to the zionist jew security company, that was incharge of security at the airports the planes and supposed terrorists came from! I smell a very very large rat in another high office of the US judicial system!!

    the zionist jews believe they have all the basses covered?

    we will see what GOD and JESUS CHRIST have to say about that!!!

    the evil will eat itself up when the heat gets turned up a notch.
    just be patient, and inform anyone you can about the truth of the jewish cabal that is running our country from behind the vail!!
