Obama’s Attorney General - Eric Holder - approved “extraordinary renditions” during the Clinton presidency.
And so now Republicans are blackmailing Holder, saying they will focus the spotlight on his role in approving renditions if Holder pulls back the cover too far on torture under the Bush administration.
This ties into Sibel Edmonds’ allegations that virtually everyone in Washington is being blackmailed not to rock some boat or another.
Are most members of Congress being blackmailed on torture, spying, and other issues of national security? Is the Justice Department? The White House?
What a swamp.
