Holder considering torture probe? Then A Housing Collapse Probe is In High Order As Well

All this Bush prosecution talk is nothing more than bowing down to the far left element of the country clamoring for anything partisan and destructive. So I suppose while they're all so concerned over at the justice dept about criminal wrongdoing, they have about 2 years of work prosecuting Christopher Dodd, Barney Frank, Franklin Raines, Nancy Pelosi and a long line of others for their obvious responsibility for the housing bubble and it's subsequent collapse.

In fact, I think "that" should be of more concern of the reverse racist Attorney General Eric Holder, instead of what was done 7 years ago by many American hero's that kicked around some terrorists in order to protect the nation after the worst terror attack it had ever seen.

These democrats will play politics with just about anything and everything they can, and this will be a major mistake that even Obama knows will put all our lives in more danger than they already are under the watch of this miserable affirmative action administration he's managed to slop together, all the Slick Willie retreads after promising the country hope and change.

In addition, they had better be prepared on that side of the aisle for the CIA to go all out to take down their speaker of the house for her sad self preserving lies she's been telling since 2003 if indeed this probe of the Bush people goes forward. And furthermore they can expect the best and brightest men and women to stay as far away from CIA jobs in the future putting this country in the most dangerous position it's ever been.

Very similar to the damage done by the Clinton administration and particularly Jamie Gorelick and friends to the agencies prior to 911 that paved the way for the attacks to be executed, thanks almost entirely to Gorelick's notorious wall of silence constructed between the CIA and FBI.

Holder considering torture probe:

My Way News - AP source: "WASHINGTON (AP) - Contrary to White House wishes, Attorney General Eric Holder may push forward with a criminal investigation into the Bush administration's harsh interrogation practices used on suspected terrorists.

Holder is considering whether to appoint a prosecutor and will make a final decision within the next few weeks, a Justice Department official told The Associated Press. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on a pending matter.

A move to appoint a criminal prosecutor is certain to stir partisan bickering that could create a distraction to President Barack Obama's efforts to push ambitious health care and energy reform."

Obama has repeatedly expressed reluctance to having a probe into alleged Bush-era abuses and resisted an effort by congressional Democrats to establish a "truth commission," saying the nation should be "looking forward and not backwards."

Justice Department spokesman Matt Miller said Holder planned to "follow the facts and the law."

"We have made no decisions on investigations or prosecutions, including whether to appoint a prosecutor to conduct further inquiry," he told the AP on Saturday. "As the attorney general has made clear, it would be unfair to prosecute any official who acted in good faith based on legal guidance from the Justice Department."

Newsweek magazine, which first reported the development, said Holder was aware of the political implications of having a probe and preferred not to create unnecessary trouble for the White House. Still, the attorney general was troubled by what he learned in reports about the treatment of prisoners at the CIA's "black sites."

The probe would focus in part on whether CIA personnel tortured terrorism suspects after Sept. 11, 2001. Holder has said those who acted within the government's legal guidance will not be prosecuted, but has left open the possibility of pursuing those who went beyond the guidance and broke the law.

Holder has discussed with his staff the possibility of a prosecutor, saying he needed someone with "gravitas and grit," the magazine reported. In the end, the attorney general asked for a list of 10 candidates, five from within the Justice Department and five from outside.

"I hope that whatever decision I make would not have a negative impact on the president's agenda," Holder told Newsweek. "But that can't be a part of my decision."
