Republicans Warn Holder: Investigate Torture And We'll Investigate You (VIDEO)

Republican senators used a hearing Thursday with Attorney General Eric Holder to discourage an investigation into torture under the Bush administration. Both Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Richard Shelby of Alabama suggested that they would push hard to expand any probe of the CIA's "rendition" program and other legally and morally questionable tactics to include the Clinton administration, as well as members of Congress who were briefed on interrogation methods.

Keith Olbermann had Brandon Friedman from VoteVets.org on Thursday night to discuss how people in the military felt about Republicans' crusade against torture probes.
