    WASHINGTON – The Justice Department announced Thursday it has ended its investigation into CIA interrogations of terrorist detainees without bringing criminal charges.

    Thursday's decision in the probes of the deaths of two terrorist suspects marks the end of a wide-ranging criminal investigation by federal prosecutor John Durham into interrogation practices during the presidency of George W. Bush.

    In the past three years, Durham has looked into the treatment of 101 detainees in U.S. custody since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

    Durham's probe into another episode involving the CIA began in January 2008 when the Justice Department chose him to conduct a criminal investigation into the agency's destruction of videotapes it had made of its interrogations of terrorist suspects.

    The Obama Admin has made it clear that they don't have much time for chasing down our enemies. They are more interested in making us the enemy.

    It has been US policy for 60 years to help our enemies and screw our friends and neighbors.

    It has not been US policy to have the fed suing states at the drop of a hat for enforcing the laws.

    Since you asked, statistically if the Republicans can keep the unemployment rising then Romney will win.
