    McCain: Don't Investigate Torture Memos

    Arizona Sen. John McCain suggested today that the push to investigate and possibly prosecute Bush administration officials who crafted the legal basis for the use of "enhanced interrogation techniques," such as waterboarding, may have grown from a desire to "settle old political scores."
    So politics overode McCains objection to torture... just like that.

    Now we have #Occupy and other voices to amplify this injustice. I'll bet this won't go away for long enough that the guilty (Cheneys & Rices' et al.) aren't necessarily safe from prosecution
