Torture Memos: Will the Truth Lead to Consequences?

Hosted by

President Obama says Attorney General Eric Holder will have to decide if lawyers in the Bush Justice Department should be prosecuted for memos justifying harsh interrogation techniques. This week, the Senate Intelligence Committee revealed that dissenting legal views were brushed aside by the Bush White House. In testimony before a House subcommittee today, Holder stressed that he would not politicize policy differences but would pursue wrongdoing “to the full extent of the law…in an appropriate way.”
