Obama: Nay on Torture Probe

Nancy Pelosi may want a truth panel into the CIA's possibly criminal interrogations, but President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are resisting. According to The New York Times, “Meeting with the Democratic leadership on Wednesday night, Mr. Obama said a special inquiry would steal time and energy from his policy agenda, and could mushroom into a wider distraction looking back at the Bush years.” Reid said yesterday, “I think it would be very unwise, from my perspective, to start having commissions, boards, tribunals, until we find out what the facts are.”
