WASHINGTON – Seven former CIA directors asked President Barack Obama on Friday to quash a criminal probe of harsh interrogations of terror suspects during the Bush administration.

He needs to do at least 1 thing right this year.

So Bush is trying to pull favors to stop the investigation of torture. So he ask his dad for help and they get 6 CIA directors who served under them to say stop the investigation. And Bush talks Clintons CIA director John M. Deutch into going along because he had his own investigation blocked.

Soon after Deutch's departure from the CIA in 1996 it was revealed that classified materials were being kept on several of Deutch's laptop computers designated as unclassified. In January 1997, the CIA began a formal security investigation of the matter. Senior management at CIA declined to fully pursue the security breach. Over two years after his departure, the matter was referred to the Department of Justice, where Attorney General Janet Reno declined prosecution. She did, however, recommend an investigation to determine whether Deutch should retain his security clearance.[4] President Clinton pardoned Deutch on his last day in office.[5]



James Woolsey served as a ambassador under Bush Sr.

If this does not work I expect we will hear from Cheney soon enough especially if the investigation starts to heat up which I am sure it won't it will be as effective as the 911 commison
