article imageJustice Dept Considers Probe Into Bush-Era Interrogation Tactics

By Patrick McMahon     Jul 12, 2009 in Politics
Attorney General Eric Holder is reportedly considering appointing a prosecutor into looking at the Bush Administration's interrogation methods.
The final decision will be made in the coming weeks, but looking into the techniques used by interrogators during the Bush years runs contrary to President Obama's desire to move forward. Justice Department spokesman Matt Miller said Holder planned to "follow the facts and the law."
Any probe into Bush-era interrogation methods would be sure to spark a massive partisan battle in Washington. Many believe that an investigation could threaten major changes Congress is currently debating including health care reform, the environment, and the war on terror.
The investigation that the Justice Department is considering would look at the tactics used by U.S. operatives on suspected terrorists following the September 11th attacks. Allegations have run rampant that torture has been used, although those reports remain unsubstaniated so far.
