Strengthening Torture Through Prosecution

by Chris Bodenner

Greenwald responds to the latest reports that Holder is looking to scapegoat - er, prosecute - only those who tortured outside the dictated lines drawn by Yoo and Co:

Though there is the potential benefit that a prosecutor could follow the trail to high-level officials notwithstanding Holder's attempts to limit the investigation (a result I think is quite unlikely), there is a strong argument to make -- as I made here -- that prosecuting only low-level "rogue" interrogators would be worse than no prosecutions at all, as that would only serve to further bolster our two-tiered system of justice.
