Who puts the Shyte in Shyster?

Notice how the story changes every day at the whim of the controlled media?

On the 16th, Obama says No prosecutions of CIA lackeys. "Nothing will be gained by spending our time and energy laying blame for the past” - preferring to move beyond "a dark and painful chapter in our history."

On the 20th Rahm Emanuel:

The Obama administration opposes any effort to prosecute those in the Justice Department who drafted legal memos authorizing harsh interrogations at secret CIA prisons, White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel said yesterday.

"It's not a time to use our energy and our time in looking back" out of "any sense of anger and retribution," Emanuel said on ABC's "This Week."

On the 21st Attorney General Holder:

President Barack Obama left the door open Tuesday to prosecuting Bush administration officials who devised the legal authority for gruesome terror-suspect interrogations, saying the United States lost "our moral bearings" with use of the tactics.

Pushing the whole thing off to Attorney General Holder, with his finger in the air.

Any bets on what will happen with that “open door”?

Barack Obama is not given the right by our Constitution to be the judge and jury for torturers. I include Bush and Cheney in this category although they committed other war crimes. Mr. Obama and our Congress took oaths to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the land. They must be reminded that they must do this job regardless of whether they think it is divisive or not.

If President Obama and the Congress do their jobs of enforcing the law with respect to torture and other Bush and Cheney war crimes, they will begin unraveling the web of deceit that has supported the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
