George Will: Obama on torture like Ford pardon of Nixon
Conservative commentator George Will see similarities between president-elect Barack Obama’s suggestion that he will probably not prosecute the Bush administration for torture to president Gerald Ford pardon of Richard Nixon.
“With regard to investigating the Bush administration, he’s made the decision that Gerald Ford made with regard to pardoning Richard nixon, which is your presidency can be swallowed up by the past arguments or you can go forward. That’s very sensible.”
