The Fix is In 

From the Associated Press:

President Barack Obama has said Attorney General Eric Holder would determine whether anyone from the Bush administration broke the law by developing a legal rationale for the interrogations.

Right. Holder, the same guy that successfully got Chiquita executives off the hook when they violated anti-terrorism laws by paying Colombian death squads notorious for killing union organizers. Apparently, such a resume was a selling point in getting him the position. Someone was needed to create the illusion of credibility while making sure that nothing of substance is done.
