Top Bush CIA officials, including Tenet's successors as CIA director, Porter Goss and Gen. Michael Hayden, strongly lobbied for the IG report to be kept secret from the public. They argued that its release would damage America's reputation around the world, could damage CIA morale, and would tip off terrorists regarding American interrogation tactics. "Justice has had the complete document since 2004, and their career prosecutors have reviewed it carefully for legal accountability," said CIA spokesman Paul Gimigliano. "That's already been done."

This is all repugnant.  I really hope it helps that Eric Holder throws the book at these sickoes, and that it helps with the push for accountability higher up.  This crap didn't happen in a vacuum. What has happened to America?

UPDATE:  from Terre in the comments:

You might mention that this was breaking news at the top of the hour on Rachel's show.  She interviewed Michael Isikoff who wrote the story in Newsweek.

He mentions sources saying that this report is EXPLOSIVE, and that Eric Holder will more than likely appoint a Special Prosecuter, and that would probably happen after the report has been released.

UPDATEx2:  Connecting some dots: I remember reading a week or so ago that AG Holder was "poised" to appoint a Special Prosecutor, but the scope of the investigation would be narrow, and confined to those instances where interrogators went beyond the "guidelines" in the torture memos.  Seems like he was gearing up for this particular ****-fan collision.
