    WASHINGTON -- President Obama says he has no plans to ask the Justice Department to end its criminal investigation into the harsh interrogations of suspected terrorists during the Bush administration.*

    Seven former CIA directors have asked the president to do just that. In a letter to Obama on Friday, they warned that the probe could discourage CIA officers from doing the kind of aggressive intelligence work needed to fight terrorism.*

    Obama tells CBS' "Face the Nation" that he appreciates that the former CIA chiefs are wanting "to look after an institution that they helped to build."*

    Obama says he wants to make sure that he's not somehow overruling the decisions of prosecutors such as Attorney General Eric Holder who are there to uphold the law.

    But he doesn't mind appearing that he may be unduly influencing a governors race.

    Well Obama does not epitomize the honesty and transparency he promised when campaigning for the office. Similarly he doesn't mind a lie, or many, when campaigning for his plan to take over one sixth of the economy. The only thing transparent about his administration is his intent to weaken the country and make it the United Socialist States of America.

    If "aggressive" means illegal and not in the spirit of the Constitution, I say investigate.

    These men have already been investigated by career prosecutors. All but one, a contract employee, were cleared. A special prosecutor could open doors that both Obama, who has continued the rendition program, and Clinton who also used it, would prefer to remain closed.

    When the National Security is at stake you leftist are quick to whine about violation of the Constitution. However, you are perfectly willing to have the Feds take over everything else in violation of the Constitution and create the United Socialist States of America.

    So we have a choice after all! OR's right-wing NWO or alatide's left-wing NWO.

    Hmmmm, I still don't see what's so bad about a consitutional republic where the government's power is limited only to the powers granted by the constitution. WITH NO EXCEPTIONS.

    Seems to me the both of you would be well pleased having an unlimited (unconstitutional) government so long as it stays within the parameters of your own poltical beliefs.
