Senator Bond has resigned from a special panel formed to review CIA detention and interrogation policies.
Bond quit in response to conflicts with the Obama Administration. Bond says the decision by Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate the interrogation practices of the CIA during the Bush Administration interferes with the work of members from the Senate Intelligence Committee to review interrogation policies and suggest changes.
Bond is vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Holder has appointed a federal prosecutor to review the legality of CIA interrogation techniques used during the Bush Administration. Bond says CIA officials will refuse to be candid with the panel, because of worries their testimony could be used in federal prosecutions.
