Judge Orders Bush Administration to Answer Questions About CIA Tapes

A federal judge has decided that the Bush administration must answer questions about the destruction of CIA interrogation videos of two al-Qaida suspects.
   Justice Department lawyers have been ordered to appear Friday to discuss whether destroying the tapes violated a court order.
   In June of 2005, the same judge ordered the administration to safeguard ``all evidence and information regarding the torture, mistreatment, and abuse of detainees now at the United States Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay.''
   Five months later, the CIA destroyed the interrogation videos.
The Justice Department argued that the videos weren't covered by the order because the two men were being held in secret CIA prisons overseas, not at the Guantanamo Bay prison.
