Poll: Americans Oppose Interrogation Witch-hunt, Favor Keeping Club Gitmo Open

Given a choice, respondents to this latest poll also offered to personally punch in the face these morons seen recently in Washington. I'm down with that.
Most Americans oppose a U.S. congressional investigation into harsh interrogation methods used on terrorism suspects during the Bush administration, a poll said on Tuesday.

A CBS News/New York Times poll found that 62 percent of Americans do not think Congress should hold hearings to investigate the treatment of detainees, about the same proportion as in a similar poll in February.
But no, the Democrats would much prefer to further divide the country, all while claiming they want to bring us together.
The poll found that 89 percent of Republicans opposed Congress holding hearings on interrogation policies, and 60 percent of independents also opposed such hearings. Democrats were more divided, with 46 percent saying Congress should hold hearings, and 51 percent saying they were not necessary.

Most of those surveyed -- 55 percent -- approved of Obama's handling of the threat of terrorism, while 28 percent did not approve.

But the poll found mixed views on Obama's decision to close the Guantanamo Bay U.S. prison for terrorism suspects by next January. The poll found that 47 percent think the prison should remain open, while 44 percent want it to be shut.
