Turley: Torture investigation would 'go directly to the doorstep of President Bush'

“How about prosecuting the people who did the sanctioning, then?” MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow wondered. She asked constititutional law professor Jonathan Turley whether Obama’s statement that “this is a time for reflection, not retribution” means he’s “promising to not prosecute officials who sanctioned torture.”

“It’s very hard to say,” Turley replied. “But what is really disturbing is that … he’s equating the enforcement of federal laws, that he took an oath to enforce … with an act of retribution in some sort of hissy fit or blame game.” “It’s not retribution to enforce criminal laws,” insisted Turley. “What it is is obstruction to prevent that enforcement — and that is exactly what he’s done thus far. He’s trying to lay the groundwork to look principled when he’s doing an utterly unprincipled thing.”

This just becomes so tiresome anymore...The "back-scratching" and covering for one another all of these gov criminals continue to provide one another is beyond disgusting. They are ALL criminals of the worst sort.

No accountability...They are all above the law.

One can only hope that a hero like Jonathon Turley will step up to the plate as an independent prosecutor and take matters out of these thugs hands and FINALLY hold them accountable for their sickening grotesqueries against humanity...

Be sure to scroll down and listen to the interview. It's enough to make one nauseated...
