Bush "Just Us" Department Lobbies on Torture

President Bush was like Tom Sawyer. He got his staff to whitewash investigations for friends. Even though the Bush administration is out of power, ex-members lobby the Obama Justice Department. They seek to soften conclusions from a five year Bush internal investigation into torture.

Maybe George W. should have released the report before he left office. But that would've require a surge of pardons. It's hard to have one's cake and eat it too, at least while being waterboarded!
