Interrogations

Attorney General Mulls Torture Probe

The Obama administration may not be so quick to “turn the page,” after all: Newsweek reports that Attorney General Eric Holder “is now leaning toward appointing a prosecutor to investigate the Bush administration's brutal interrogation practices, something the president has been reluctant to do.” Holder’s decision could come within weeks.. "I hope that whatever decision I make would not have a negative impact on the president's agenda," Holder says. "But that can't be a part of my decision." Holder has asked for a list of 10 candidates for special prosecutor, five from within the administration and five from outside it.
