Sorting out the truth on 'aggressive interrogation'
With new details emerging about the Bush administration's policies on "aggressive interrogation" of alleged terrorists, there's been a lively debate about whether the Obama administration should try to prosecute people responsible for the policies.
We examined two claims in the debate:
* Sen. Lindsey Graham's claim that the Geneva Conventions did not apply to suspected terrorists until 2005. We found there is still considerable debate about the policies prior to a 2006 Supreme Court decision, so we rated that one Half True .
* An allegation from MSNBC host Keith Olbermann that New Gingrich had flip-flopped on the subject of torture. We rated that one with our Flip-O-Meter and gave Gingrich a Half Flip .
