I think that this is probably due to most Americans not being leftwing, radical idiots still hating on President Bush, but that could just be me:
Most Americans oppose a U.S. congressional investigation into harsh interrogation methods used on terrorism suspects during the Bush administration, a poll said on Tuesday.
A CBS News/New York Times poll found that 62 percent of Americans do not think Congress should hold hearings to investigate the treatment of detainees, about the same proportion as in a similar poll in February.
The poll also found that President Barack Obama continues to have strong public backing for his job performance, with 68 percent of respondents approving of his job performance and 23 percent disapproving.
The Senate Intelligence Committee is conducting a closed-door probe of interrogation policies used under former President George W. Bush. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, has said that the committee should be allowed to do its work.
But Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, have advocated a congressionally created bipartisan commission to investigate the matter.
"I know some people say, let's turn the page. Frankly, I'd like to read the page before we turn it," Leahy told the CBS program "Face the Nation" on Sunday.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs has said Obama opposes such a commission.
