Conflicted about Eric Holder

On one hand, I want to support AG Eric Holder as a fellow Stuyvesant and Columbia alumnus (though we diverge at our respective law schools), and I believe African-American success has historically paved the way for other-minority success (though, in this case, hispanic AG Alberto Gonzales recently held the same job). On the other hand, his very public prosecution initiative against CIA operatives and Bush admin officials over the War on Terror is troubling; more so given that these issues were already handled with discretion by the CIA and DOJ in 2004.

Read Obama-fan Tom Barnett on this issue. Bonus article, also in Esquire, about John Yoo.
