LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Former U.S. Attorney General and future Texas Tech professor Alberto Gonzales is discouraging a possible CIA criminal probe.
Gonzales says a criminal investigation into whether CIA interrogations after 9/11 crossed legal lines could have a chilling effect on U.S. anti-terrorism efforts.
Gonzales stated a Justice Department investigation could discourage CIA operatives from "engaging in conduct that even comes close" to department guidelines.
