The CIA’s internal watchdog has admitted it "mistakenly" destroyed its only copy of the Senate’s report on CIA torture. Yahoo News said the acknowledgment came as Justice Department lawyers assured a federal judge copies of the report were being preserved. The CIA reportedly does have another copy. The 6,700-page report has never been publicly released.
