    "For weeks, the right has heckled Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. for his plans to try the alleged 9/11 conspirators in New York City and his handling of the Christmas bombing plot suspect. Now the left is going to be upset: an upcoming Justice Department report from its ethics-watchdog unit, the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), clears the Bush administration lawyers who authored the “torture” memos of professional-misconduct allegations."

    But it does not say that they are not totally without fault. Looks like lawyers protecting lawyers to me.

    They issued legal "opinions" , nothing more.

    No one was about to charge them or censure them for an "opinion". It was all for show. Trying to please the rabid left.

    That's an open invitation to have the same thing done to any administration attorney every time the administration changes.
