Attorney General Eric Holder

Attorney General Eric Holder

Last Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder made a bold move regarding the now extinct “war on terror”.  Making an apparent 180° on his own stance towards looking back at Bush-era controversies, Holder appointed a special prosecutor to investigate alleged abuse of terror suspects.  In April of this year, Mr. Holder said, “It would be unfair to prosecute dedicated men and women working to protect America for conduct that was sanctioned in advance by the Justice Department.”  (more…)
