Rep. Schakowsky: Congress should investigate torture
By David Edwards
The Obama administration has said that those that ordered or conducted torture should not be held accountable. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., discusses her belief that officials involved in torture under the Bush administration should be prosecuted.

I think impunity is a problem. That the fact that this policy may be 20, 50 years from now can be looked back at and said, Well, during the Bush administration they did authorize torture of individuals. This is a critical situation, and we ought to do it, Schakowsky told MSNBCs David Shuster.
