Maine Delegates and CIA Waterboarding

There is now a debate about whether or not Congress should investigate the harsh interrogation methods used by the CIA. Maine's congressional delegation is split on this issue - of course, along party lines. This is a sore that does not need to be opened. If we investigate the CIA then it will extend further to the military and others. No good will come of this and it will further detract from the fight against terrorism, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and our many economic problems. The Democrats need to look to the future and fix the many problems that lie ahead of us; not relive the past. See an article in today's Portland Press Herald, April 24, 2009, entitled "Delegation divided over how to handle CIA interrogations".
