Matthew Cole of NBC News tells the story of a high-ranking CIA official who was connected to a failure of her organization to share key information with the FBI prior to the 9-11 attacks. That was before she backed (and participated in) the torture program, and later made false claims about its effectiveness. “U.S. officials who spoke with NBC News on condition of anonymity confirmed that her name was redacted at least three dozen times in an effort to avoid publicly identifying her. In fact, much of the four-month battle between Senate Democrats and the CIA about redactions centered on protecting the identity of the woman.”
