    Despite the fact that Obama has said he is inclined to move on, his Attorney General, Eric Holder, is talking seriously about the possibility of investigating George Bush's torture policies.

    Link. Emphasis mine.

    "But that can't be a part of my decision." Omigod, a man with actual come-hell-or-high-water principles.

    And this comes only a day or two after confirmation that it was George Bush himself that authorized the illegal secret surveillance program.

    Crimes have been committed, and for the first time there is an actual chance that they may be prosecuted. Yes, this could be explosive. But I think Holder's right: that shouldn't enter into it. What kind of nation would we be if we allowed the leader of the free world to commit crimes and then ignored it out of political expediency?

    Perhaps Holder is Obama's attack dog?

    Whatever the case, good for Holder.

    Cheney is the easier target as he clearly broke the law.

    It's gonna get worse for Bush and Cheney too :

    "(CNN) -- President Obama has ordered national security officials to look into allegations that the Bush administration resisted efforts to investigate a CIA-backed Afghan warlord over the killings of hundreds of Taliban prisoners in 2001."

    Here comes the diversion.

    In other words, they will force their legislation they want through using this as a front page cover.
