Senator Leahy has been working on a Truth Commission, and today there should be actual announcements and press releases about a Torture Investigation.

Snippets from the Raw Story article::
"The Senate is quietly preparing plans to investigate allegations of torture under President George W. Bush, according comments published Wednesday by Senate Judiciary Chairman Pat Leahy (D-VT) and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI).The Senate Judiciary Committee could announce a hearing to consider various plans to probe allegations of torture as early as today, according to Salon's Mark Benjamin, citing Committee Chairman Pat Leahy and members of his staff. Leahy's office told Raw Story Wednesday morning that a press release would be sent out shortly.Sen. Whitehouse said he’s “convinced” the investigation will move forward."

I am not holding my breath. If it happens I will dance a jig. The rethugs spent nearly 8 years investigating Bill Clinton for every piece of dirt they could attempt to dig up. In comparison to the things that Bush has done it is disgusting that we have not already had investigations into allegations of torture.

In my book War Crimes trumps getting a bj from an intern, but then it just goes to show you that Republicans have a twisted sense of right versus wrong.

I got an email from Sen. Leahy thanking me for supporting his truth commission. I appriciated getting that. I know it was just a form letter type thing but it was still an acknowledgement of it.
