Aug. 24 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder appointed a career prosecutor to review whether CIA officials and the agency’s private contractors should be prosecuted amid new revelations that terror suspects were threatened with guns and a power drill. Holder named John Durham, who previously investigated the destruction of Central Intelligence Agency videotapes of interrogations, to conduct the examination. The Justice Department released more details of the alleged abuses and new restrictions on interrogations. “The information known to me warrants opening a preliminary review into whether federal laws were violated in connection with the interrogation of specific detainees at overseas locations,” Holder said in a statement released in Washington today. “Neither the opening of a preliminary review nor, if evidence warrants it, the commencement of a full investigation, means that charges will necessarily follow.”

Today, CIA Abuses. DOJ Abuses, Next?
Today U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder appointed a special prosecutor to investigate abuses by Rove Bush Cheney's CIA. The question we have is: Will Holder appoint a special prosecutor to investigate DOJ abuses by the Rove Republican Racket during the Rove Bush Cheney era? We hope so.
The human and political rights of prominent Democrats were trampled on for the sake of "political" security by Karl Rove and friends.While some suspected terrorists were threatened with power drills and guns by the CIA, real Democrats were threatened with extensive prison terms by the DOJ and persecuted on bogus political charges. Some eventually were imprisoned or "plead out" fearing decades in prison.
