Eric Holder's decision to prosecute the CIA

Eric Holder's decision to name a career prosecutor to investigate alleged CIA interrogation abuses would seem to fulfill a dramatic pledge he made last year when he was promoting the election of Barack Obama. "We owe the American people a reckoning," Holder said in a much-quoted speech that blasted the excesses of the Bush administration in its prosecution of the war on terror.
Is the justice department prosecuting those purple-shirted thugs who beat up mr. gladney, the U.S.citizen at the town hall meeting in St. Louis, who only wanted to give away "Don't Tread on Me" flags. isn't there some Right of Assembly, Free Speech, Life, Liberty rights involved here.
Holder said that he realizes the move is controversial but that it was the only responsible course to take, but I guess he don't care! So I guess that now the CIA is the bad guys, and the New Black Panthers are free to intimidate white voters.
And instead they will try to bring up charges against those men and women who were trying to protect our country.
