Subject: re: Don’t Execute Those We Tortured
To the Editor:
The U.S. constitution give the president power to pardon anyone for any crime barring impeachment. But that same constitution requires that he/she must "take care that the laws be faithfully executed". It is not at his/her discretion to look forward and not backwards. So let president Obama pardon torturers if he thinks that's best for the country. But let him do that after they've been investigated and named and prosecuted and convicted. To do less would be to shirk his explicit job description.
