Larry Johnson, a former CIA agent and State Department counterterrorism official, told The Bill Press Show this morning that it was “highly likely” President Bush had viewed the videotapes of the 2002 interrogations that were later destroyed:

Bill Press: You said that you believe President Bush actually saw one of these videos?

Larry Johnson: I think it’s highly likely.

Ron Suskind, author of the One Percent Doctrine, also recently stated that it is likely the torture and the destruction of the tapes were “being authorized from the White House.”
