The Raw Story | 'Waterboarding' is torture: US attorney general-designate ================================================================== Holder was also asked whether he believed that the US president had the constitutional power to "immunize" an intelligence officer to carry out an act of torture on a terror suspect. "No one is above the law, the president has a constitutional obligation to faithfully execute the law of the United States," said Holder. "It's my belief that the president does not have the power that you have indicated." =================================================================== I'd suspect a few peeps in the outgoing administration should be getting ready for court very soon! Justice will come back to the Justice department. No offense to you 'people' who defend torture in the media and on this board, the fact of the matter is that the United States has convicted many in the past for this war crime. The fact that we gave torture the green light is a dark stain on our nation's history.
