Question of the Day
Justice Breyer cites rule of law in annual Holocaust ceremony
Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Breyer says the rule of law is important in protecting mankind from the evils of arbitrary power. He made the comments Tuesday as he led annual ceremonies in the Capitol to remember the Holocaust.
Justice Breyer told the several hundred people on hand, including members of Congress and Holocaust survivors gathered in the Capitol Rotunda, that he was there “as a judge and a Jew.”
Congressman wants Justice to back off CIA interrogators
Rep. Mike Rogers, Alabama Republican and chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said the Justice Department should stop investigating CIA interrogators for alleged abuse of detainees under the George W. Bush administration. Mr. Rogers said the interrogators’ work helped lead to the killing of terrorism mastermind Osama bin Laden.
In a letter to Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. obtained by the Associated Press, Mr. Rogers says the interrogation program was a “vital part of the chain” that led to the successful raid on bin Laden’s hide-out in Pakistan.
Since 2009, the Justice Department has been investigating cases involving CIA interrogation tactics, including what the CIA inspector general called a mock execution.
Obama tries to fire up frustrated supporters
Angling for a second term, President Obama tried to fire up supporters Monday night, saying failure to get everything they want as fast as they want should motivate and not dissuade them.
“When you think back to these last 2½ years, I want you to do so not with complacency, not with full satisfaction, but I want it to motivate you,” Mr. Obama told about 600 supporters at a campaign fundraiser at the Capital Hilton.
Mr. Obama also spoke at a dinner with about 60 high-dollar donors at the St. Regis Hotel.
