Abuse of Power

This is probably one of the hottest topics on the Net this moment. Of course I am speaking of The Bush Administration’s Secret Legal Memos and the criticism about the lack of prosecution of the CIA torturers, who it would seem are now protected by the Obama Administrations latest decision not to prosecute them.

Human and civil rights groups in the US have expressed dismay at news that CIA agents will not face prosecution over interrogation tactics in the Bush era.

Here is what I was able to find at the ACLU. Org

Abuse of Power:

A 18-page memo, dated August 1, 2002, from Jay Bybee, Assistant Attorney General, OLC, to John A. Rizzo, General Counsel CIA. Pdf

A 46-page memo, dated May 10, 2005, from Steven Bradbury, Acting Assistant Attorney General, OLC, to John A. Rizzo, General Counsel CIA. Pdf

A 20-page memo, dated May 10, 2005, from Steven Bradbury, Acting Assistant Attorney General, OLC, to John A. Rizzo, General Counsel CIA. Pdf

The Truth Is a Terrible Thing to Reveal

At the Corner, NRO’s Andy McCarthy calls the release of the CIA torture interrogation memos “a terrible decision”. At the risk of having my head explode, might I ask what the frack makes it so terrible?
