Attorney General Holder is about to really screw up the CIA..

Holder is appointing a special prosecutor to go after CIA operatives regarding the treatment of Terror suspects and who the fuck knows what else. IMO this is only the beginning..


http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...401743_pf.html



As a result, Leon Panetta has reportedly threatened to quit as the CIA Director.

There was a key line in that article:
Quote:
"You can expect a larger than normal turnover in the next year," a senior adviser to Obama on intelligence matters told ABCNews.com.
no shit ehh?

For Obama's part, he supposedly has stated that he doesn't want to go after CIA folks and wants to "move on". That "might" be true but Holder does have independence to move without Obama's permission. I suspect it is very possible that Obama gave him tacit permission to proceed but I would hope that he isn't so stupid to put the country in that kind of danger.

Now I wonder how many active CIA operatives are going to quit over this? How much damage is this going to do to our intelligence gathering capabilities?

Barry's just letting Holder do his dirty work for him. This presidency is a total sham, from the top on down.

CHL holder and Conservative...AKA "Domestic Terrorist"

I can't wait to see if this turnabout being fair play if this Presidency prosecutes Bush Administration members.
