Campaign For Special Torture Prosecutor Takes Change.gov Site By Storm

The votes are in, and the top-ranked question – out of 70,000 submitted to Obama’s site – asks for an investigation of torture and spying.

A whopping 70,000 questions poured into Change.gov over the past week, in response to the Obama transition team’s call for citizen queries to the President-Elect. After votes from about 100,000 people, the top ranked question asks Obama whether he will appoint a special prosecutor to investigate allegations of torture and illegal surveillance by the U.S. government.</em>

Anyone who thinks that Obama is going to squander political capital investigating the crimes of the last eight years probably still believes in Santa Claus…and we’ll have an obese white guy flying in the sky before George Bush is forced to raise his right hand and swear to tell the truth.
