Mukasey Agrees: Torture Prosecutions Likely

You read it here first, and then in the New York Times, and now Mukasey agrees to:

Attorney General Michael Mukasey raised concerns that government agents and national security lawyers may be at risk for criminal prosecution after his likely successor, Eric Holder, declared that waterboarding of terror detainees is torture….

…He added that in the future, government lawyers and agents “have to be concerned that you may someday — having given your best, most honest, most impartial advice — have it be said of you that you sanctioned a crime.”

Wouldn’t that be TERRIBLE? Imagine having to worry about whether or not your advice was legal! How unfair!
