Is the Justice Department Holding Torturers Accountable?

The answer might depend on which media outlet you rely on.

I read the headline at Democracy Now! on Friday:

"Justice Dept Drops 99 of 101 Cases Against CIA for Abuse and Torture"

The New York Times, on the other hand, offered a different sort of emphasis:

"U.S. Widens Inquiries Into 2 Jail Deaths"
