Congressmen Demand Special Prosecutor. Attorney General Yawns.
News flash! Representatives John Conyers, Jerry Nadler and William Delahunt have written a letter to Attorney General Michael Mukasey asking very sternly for Mukasey to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the American rendition of Canadian citizen Maher Arar to Syria, where he was tortured under interrogation.
Anonymous sources have informed Irregular Times that Attorney General Mukasey plans to have the letter shredded into fine bits to sprinkle on his breakfast cereal.
Without an independent counsel law, under which Mukasey would have had to start at least a preliminary investigation, and with impeachment taken off the table, what else do you expect a Bush administration toady to do?
