So which will it be???

In related news, Huffington Post’s Murray Waas writes that despite the intensifying scrutiny of the authors of the so-called “torture memos,” criminal charges against them are unlikely.

Waas cites a secret Obama Justice Department internal report currently in preparation that “does not recommend that the Bush administration lawyers face criminal charges.”

This is where the rubber meets the road with Prez Obama.

United States interrogators killed nearly four dozen detainees during or after their interrogations, according a report published by a human rights researcher based on a Human Rights First report and followup investigations.

In all, 98 detainees have died while in US hands. Thirty-four homicides have been identified, with at least eight detainees — and as many as 12 — having been tortured to death, according to a 2006 Human Rights First report that underwrites the researcher’s posting. The causes of 48 more deaths remain uncertain.

I will go on record now and say that any investigation into the torture of those detainees will be tepid at best it will make the 9/11 commission look thorough.It's clear to me at least that all of these hearings and secret reports are there to humor the democrats major contributors this is all window dressing and nothing more.
