The news of Eric Holder’s mandate on the special prosecutor to go after just those that actually engaged in the torture is being met with some strong criticism from the dems. Basically they are saying that it isn’t enough. I agree, but I am also going to be optimistic.
A lot of these investigations start off with a very narrow scope. Its once you start looking through the smaller lens that the bigger picture starts coming into focus. A couple of months ago we heard there would be no prosecutor, and now we are saying that the one we have isn’t enough. Well let’s just wait and see what this guy comes up with. He could end up going to Holder and saying “hey there is a much bigger picture here and I can’t see it without going down that rabbit hole”. If that happens then we will start seeing some big names pulled in.
