WH on interrogation prosecutor

From NBC's Alicia Jennings
In response to the establishment of a Justice Department prosecutor to look into a select number of CIA interrogations, White House Deputy spokesman Bill Burton writes in an e-mail to NBC News:

"The President has said repeatedly that he prefers to look forward, not back, and the President agrees with the Attorney General that those who acted in good faith and within the scope of legal guidance should not be prosecuted. Ultimately, decisions about investigations and prosecutions are made independently by the Attorney General."
