"The decision in the inquiries of the deaths of two terrorist suspects marks the end of a wide-ranging criminal investigation by federal prosecutor John Durham into interrogation practices during the presidency of George Bush.
Durham has looked into the treatment of 101 detainees in US custody since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Durham's inquiry into another episode involving the CIA began in January 2008 when the justice department chose him to conduct a criminal investigation into the agency's destruction of videotapes it had made of its interrogations of terrorist suspects....
...In August 2009, attorney general Eric Holder expanded Durham's mandate to include a preliminary review of the CIA's interrogation of specific detainees overseas. In June 2011, Holder approved Durham's request to move into a full criminal investigation of the two deaths.
The 2009 expansion followed the public release of an internal CIA inspector general's report that revealed agency interrogators once threatened to kill a 9/11 suspect's children, and suggested another would be forced to watch his mother be sexually assaulted. The report said some CIA interrogators went beyond Bush administration restrictions that gave them wide latitude to use severe tactics such as waterboarding, a simulated drowning technique."
Of course the "Just-Us" Department ruled out enforcing the law against US torturers and murderers. I mean, you can tell by their actions that they are "real American heroes", right? If you prosecute them, how else can these noble public servants continue on the job?
Though quite sickened by the result, I never expected anything else but "closure" for the cover-up of these crimes. Durham will probably now be on the short list for the next A.G. to follow Eric "Place"-Holder, the pride of Wall Street. - Wes
