WASHINGTON - The U.S. Justice Department opened a criminal investigation into the destruction of CIA interrogation videotapes, and Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey said Wednesday that he appointed an outside prosecutor to oversee the case.
That outside prosecutor is a guy who investigate the fucking FBI!
I guess he has big balls, he's gonna need 'em going after the folks at CIA.
They are going to fight tooth and nail trying to cover their fucking asses.
Mukasey named John Durham, a federal prosecutor, to oversee the case. Durham has a reputation as one of the most relentless U.S. prosecutors. He served as an outside prosecutor overseeing an investigation into the FBI's use of mob informants in Boston and helped send several Connecticut public officials to prison.
The 911 commission repeatedly asked the CIA for all relevant information and the CIA basically ignored anything that had to do with interrogation of suspects.
