Big shocker: Obama will not prosecute torturers
The ACLU demanded disclosure of the memos of the Bush administration that authorize torture.
And Obama did release them.
But…he is not going to prosecute the torturers.
Even though he said:
In one of my very first acts as President, I prohibited the use of these interrogation techniques by the United States because they undermine our moral authority and do not make us safer.
But here is another big surprise:
CIA officials who participated in enhanced interrogations during the Bush administration will be defended by government attorneys should charges be brought against them.
This blogger points out that America has a legal double standard.
As Bush would say: America doesn’t torture. Freedom tickles.
