So the Justice Department got most of what it wanted here. Judge Alvin Hellerstein ruled this morning that the CIA will have until August 24 to release a declassified version of the 2004 CIA inspector general’s report on torture, a report that documents abuse so disturbing it reportedly brought Attorney General Eric Holder to the point of authorizing a torture prosecutor. Two weeks ago, the department filed paperwork, contested by the American Civil Liverties Union, to delay a long-scheduled release of the report by August 31.

Can't wait to see all the redacted statements.

Prosecute all those that tortured in our name, then go after all the other Federal Crimes and violations of our Constitution committed by Bush and Cheney.

If House Judiciary Chairman Rep. John Conyers
does not soon start hearings in his Committee
