Surely, the 80% of the country that doesn't view themselves as "liberals" can recall how Obama Attorney General Eric Holder, with clear symptoms of Bush Derangement Syndrome, went out of his way to inquire into allegations of torture against the CIA during the Bush administration. Well, after a two-year investigation the Justice Dept. just announced that a special prosecutor appointed by Holder found no criminal wrongdoing by the CIA's handling of some 100 terrorists. This news not only leaves sufferers of Bush Derangement Syndrome again looking stupid, but a legitimate call for Holder to resign:
After reopening Justice Department investigations into use of CIA enhanced interrogation, Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. admitted that he had not read the memos of his own department’s lawyers explaining why no criminal laws had been violated.
Now, John Dunham, the assistant U.S. attorney in Connecticut assigned by Holder to re-investigate the cases, has concluded that the lawyers who closed the case were correct, and no criminal charges are warranted.
The re-investigation subjected former CIA officers to the chilling prospect of going to jail. As seven former CIA directors who served under Republicans and Democrats have said publicly, the probe sent a message to CIA officers that if they take risks in defense of their country, they may suffer consequences.
