Question: Has torture faded as an issue?

Arianna Huffington: No, I don’t think it’s lost relevance. I think a lot will depend on what the Attorney General, what Holder will do. He’s kind of telegraphed that he does want to have -- to open up an investigation into the Bush Administrations torture practices. A lot of the people who write about it constantly are staying on it, including Andrew Sullivan, and that’s very important. I think that’s one of the great things about what the online media that you can stay on a story and stay on a story and when the mainstream media moves on, we can actually keep covering it until something happens.
