Indicting CIA interrogators without indicting the policymakers who put them in positions to break the law doesn't exactly resemble justice. But neither does declining to indict torturers... - Spencer Ackerman

Attorney General Eric Holder has promised to use disavowed legal opinions dreamed up by the likes of John Yoo and Jay Bybee to determine standards for prosecution of CIA agents. Meaning that accommodation will be made for 

sleep deprivation, stress positions, waterboarding, forced nudity, cramped confinement in a dark space, water dousing, wall standing, walling, facial slaps, abdominal slaps, insects placed in a confinement box, facial holds, attention grasps, and dietary manipulation.

Now, how to excuse mock executions and death threats with power drills? Surely they're included in the spirit of those opinions.
