OBAMA REFUSES TO PROSECUTE CIA TORTURE CRIMINALS

Politico - The Obama administration pledged not to prosecute CIA employees who carried out aggressive interrogation practices approved by top officials in the Bush administration. The pledge came as President Barack Obama authorized the release of four Bush administration legal memos detailing war on terror interrogation techniques that some have decried as torture. . .

"This is a time for reflection not retribution," Obama said. "We have been through a dark and painful chapter in our history. But at a time of great challenges and disturbing disunity, nothing will be gained by spending our time and energy laying blame for the past."

Progressive Review - Obama didn't say whether this principle also applied to murderers, bank robbers and marijuana users.
