CIA Torturers Running Scared

By Ray McGovern

For the CIA supervisors and operatives who were responsible for torture, the chickens are coming home to roost.  That is, if President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder mean it when they say no one is above the law - and if they have the courage to stand up to brazen intimidation. 

Unable to prevent Attorney General Eric Holder from starting an investigation of torture and other war crimes that implicate CIA officials past and present, some of those same CIA officials, together with what in intelligence circles are called "agents of influence" in the media, are pulling out all the stops to quash the Department of Justice's preliminary investigation. 

In what should be seen as a bizarre twist, seven CIA directors-including three who are themselves implicated in planning and conducting torture and assassination- have asked the President to call off Holder. 

Can someone please tell me how could the whole thing be more transparent? 

The most vulnerable of the Gang of Seven, George Tenet, is not the brightest star in the heavens, but even he was able to figure out years ago that he and his accomplices might end up having to pay a heavy price for violating international and U.S. criminal law.
