Can’t say I’m getting all wee-weed up about the DOJ disclosure today that Bush/CIA interrogators threatened 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed’s family (info that isn’t even new.)

Nope. No tears.

How about you?

Distraction time:

The US attorney general is set to name a special prosecutor to probe CIA interrogators suspected of having violated anti-torture laws, US media said Monday.

Eric Holder, America’s top law enforcement official, will name veteran justice department prosecutor John Durham to examine nearly a dozen cases of potential violations, according to the Washington Post.

…Obama has previously ruled that terror interrogators acting on legal guidelines written by the Bush administration after the September 11 attacks in 2001 should not face prosecution.

The buck stops with Obama, except when it’s politically inexpedient:

Leaders at the Justice Department and the intelligence community have clashed this year over the release of sensitive interrogation memos, military photographs of detainee abuse and how to handle the cases of more than 200 detainees at the prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Holder’s decision could complicate the Justice Department’s relationship with the White House, where President Obama has repeatedly expressed a desire to move forward from the national security controversies of the Bush administration. Deputy White House press secretary Bill Burton told reporters Monday that the president had complete faith in Holder and that the decision whether to launch an investigation was the attorney general’s sole prerogative.

“The White House supports the attorney general making the decisions on who gets prosecuted and investigated,” Burton said.

Update: Left-wing letdown over CIA abuse report distraction.

Hype and change…the subject.
