    i.e. The CIA is above the law and anything illegal that the CIA does to protect this country should be overlooked.

    Is this how we want our troops treated if they were captured?

    This puts the ball clearly in Obama's court. Holder works for Obama. I don't think that Obama will want to be seen as the one who further lowers the trust that CIA agents have in the White House. Now this reversal of a former administration decision could lead to some mass exodus of agents for lack of trust in the Obama Administration. This is clearly in Obama's hands and it should have been seen that way from the beginning since Holder works for Obama.

    Using "It is behind us" as an excuse not to probe is the lamest of all excuses.

    ALL CRIME IS IN THE PAST If that is the standard then they better just release everyone that ever committed a crime for wrongfull prosecution...BECAUSE every prosecution was about a crime that had already occured.

    Good point.

    I guess like those illegals we should have the same illegal acts of corporations HIRING said illegals, be the same private corporations hire the CIA & have them do our dirty illegal work.

    Good plan.

    I'm quite sure the CIA would like to keep all their dirty little secrets in the closet.

    You'd figure that since all of these Republicans are so outraged about Government funding towards ACORN, they'd be outraged that the CIA gave funds and give information to the Mob in the 50's. Yet, none of them blink a eye.
