    Thumbs down Pres Obama pussies out on doing any actual investigating of Bush era torture

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House on Thursday said it did not support creation of an independent panel to investigate the Bush administration's harsh interrogations of terror suspects.
    "Something like this would likely just become a political back-and-forth," presidential spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters. "We're all best suited looking forward."

    Gibbs said the idea of an independent commission to look into the treatment of detainees in the early stages of the anti-terror war was discussed "in earnest" inside the White House about two weeks ago, as President Barack Obama and his aides were deciding whether to release a key set of Bush-era memos detailing brutal interrogation techniques used on some terror suspects and the legal justification behind them. The memos were declassified and made public by the Obama administration last week.

    "The president determined that the concept didn't seem altogether that workable in this case," the spokesman said.

    With the Senate Intelligence Committee conducting its own probe of the Bush program, the Obama White House seems to have determined it is best to let that process play out and not endorse any other forum for examining the era more deeply.

    The Senate panel is investigating the legal underpinnings for the interrogations as well as the value of the information they produced. Republicans fear the creation of a bipartisan commission would be mostly an effort to vilify former President George W. Bush and top Bush officials.

    The Obama administration's stance on the question has been muddied over recent days.

    Obama always has said he prefers to look forward, not back and made clear he would rather not see the nation engage in a detailed revisiting of the interrogation program. On Tuesday, though, Obama said that if Congress insisted on a deeper investigation of the issue, he preferred for it to be done "outside of the typical hearing process" and include "independent participants who are above reproach and have credibility."
    Gibbs said later that day that the independent Sept. 11 commission, which investigated and then reported on the terror attacks of 2001, might be a model.

    But the press secretary's comments on Thursday, two days later, took that approach off the table, returning to what he said had been Obama's original opinion against an independent panel.

    Unfortunately, none of these assholes are going to be prosecuted. They commited the worst war crimes and will never be held accountable for it.
    It sucks.

    I wish Obama would make up his damn mind already. This constant back and forth is ridiculous. I know Bush and the other big fish aren't going to be prosecuted, but go after somebody.
