Special Prosecutor? Perhaps…

Several media outlets are reporting this morning that Eric Holder is leaning towards appointing a Special Prosecutor to investigate the Bush Administration’s war crimes in relation to torture. The story they are all linking to is this one from Newsweek. An excerpt:

….Four knowledgeable sources tell NEWSWEEK that he is now leaning toward appointing a prosecutor to investigate the Bush administration’s brutal interrogation practices, something the president has been reluctant to do. While no final decision has been made, an announcement could come in a matter of weeks, say these sources, who decline to be identified discussing a sensitive law-enforcement matter. Such a decision would roil the country, would likely plunge Washington into a new round of partisan warfare, and could even imperil Obama’s domestic priorities, including health care and energy reform. Holder knows all this, and he has been wrestling with the question for months. “I hope that whatever decision I make would not have a negative impact on the president’s agenda,” he says. “But that can’t be a part of my decision.”

Upholding the law should be the only thing Holder thinks about when deciding whether to appoint a Prosecutor to look into the torture issue. AP adds this:

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.

Come on Eric, do the right thing…go after these pompous fuckwits..please!

The Rethugs are not part of the solution, they are part of the problem. Alienating them is no big deal as the bastards have become the Party of No. There is no bipartisanship in DC..so fuck the bastards and go after Bush, Cheney, Yoo, et. al. Especially after this story hit the newswires. Dick Cheney is a liar and a carpetbagging douchenozzle. He relished keeping Congress in the dark..and actually had the CIA lie to them. No one deserves to be brought down like The Big Dick Cheney™. No one.

  1. Seems to me once you start connecting Republicans with crimes and then prosecuting them, that they will be backtracking from their support of torture quicker than they'd beg for mercy on the waterboard.
