The most popular question on President-elect Obama's own Web site, change.gov, is whether he will appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Bush administration practices such as torture and illegal wiretapping. Americans seem to be more concerned with this issue than with the state of the economy. Pepe Escobar examines how both Obama and Vice-President- elect Joe Biden have given evasive answers at best compared to how both outgoing President Bush and Vice-President Cheney have been on the record strongly defending their practices. House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers has proposed - an investigating committee. But in the end a prosecutor - special or otherwise - may not be that hard to find.
