Friday beaver and CIA torture review

CIA report (pdf) It's been out for a while but I finally got around to skimming just the index. Just by the index anyone with half a brain would conclude two things. First that this info is not only about Gitmo, but a few other places around the globe. And second that there were other techniques used that weren't even disclosed. They're blacked out.
Holter should know that this is not going to be a limited investigation. You don't let the godfather off the hook and go after some street thugs who might work for him. It will be like an onion peeled back for the world to see. I figure it will take some time but it will come out.

Redacted reports on things such as torture really disgust me. On its face, it just screams cover-up.

I think Holder, and to a greater extent his boss, are scared of being hit with charges from the right that any investigation will be a political hit job.

Yeah, right. Because we all know Bush might decide at any time to run for political office, and Cheney can't wait his turn to run for president.

What Holder and Obama need to get a grip on is that the right will claim a political hit job is being done on their darlings if anyone in the current administration says anything the least bit negative about them.

I agree with you on this 100%. It's all political at this point.
Note that Cheney was all for bringing out the memos after leaving office and now that they're actually coming out he's dead set against it.
