TORTURE

Bush Lawyers May Face Charges

Though President Obama has promised the CIA that agents who tortured terror suspects will not face prosecution, the same does not go for the lawyers that came up with the justification for their actions. Speaking at the White House today, Obama refused to rule out the possibility of prosecuting Bush's team of lawyers. He did, however, express concern about the effects of "high-intensity hearings" that would likely resemble a truth commission. Obama said he supports an investigation on treatment of detainees provided it's "conducted in a bipartisan way." The president is leaving the decision of whether to prosecute the Bush lawyers in the hands of Attorney General Eric Holder, who pushed for the release of the torture memos they authored.
