Following a closed-door hearing with CIA Director Michael Hayden, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Silvestre Reyes (D-TX) said there’s still “a lot of questions” that need answering:
We just had a three-hour session with Director Hayden. Obviously, there’s several things that we can say at this point. First and foremost, we still have a lot of questions. This is just the beginning of our bipartisan investigation into the issue of the videotapes, who gave the instructions to videotape, how long they were in the possession of the agency and also, ultimately, who decided to destroy them.
We’re going to follow this through and find out where the facts lead us, obviously. But suffice it to say that there is a tremendous amount of frustration because, notwithstanding what General Hayden put out last week, we feel, on a bipartisan level, that our committee was not informed, has not been kept informed and we are very frustrated about that issue.
Reyes said he “absolutely” plans to call Porter Goss and George Tenet to testify. Ranking member Peter Hoekstra (R-MI) added, “I think the list is going to be relatively long.”
UPDATE: Hayden told the AP that he knew that the videotapes had been destroyed before taking over as head of the CIA.
