Holt Statement on Release of Bush-Era Memos From The Office of Legal Counsel
U.S. Rep. Rush Holt (NJ-12), Chair of the Select Intelligence Oversight Panel and a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, today issued the following statement on the release of four unredacted Bush-era memos from the Office of Legal Counsel on detainee treatment.
"I've been eager for these memos to see the light of day so that everyone will know and we all can learn from the dangerous groupthink that enveloped policy makers. Although I'm not a lawyer, I don't think they hold up to legal analysis, to say nothing of common sense and common decency."
