Torture Top Concern at

By Ben Trott

According to a blog entry over at the Nation, around 70,000 questions poured into the Obama team's transition website,, in response to a request for enquiries from the public. The questions were voted on by close to 100,000 people. They decided the following was the most important,
'Will you appoint a Special Prosecutor - ideally Patrick Fitzgerald - to independently investigate the gravest crimes of the Bush Administration, including torture and warrantless wiretapping'
The question was submitted by Bob Fertick from Fitzgerald is the US Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, with a high profile due to his involvement in the cases against both Lewis 'Scooter' Libby and Rod Blagojevich.
