If he told us he would have to kill us

Yesterday Congressman Robert Wexler (D - FL) had the opportunity to question FBI director Robert Mueller about his knowledge of torture by other government agencies. He had less of an opportunity to get any answers but Directory Mueller more or less admitted that he and his organisation were aware of violations of law by the CIA (and perhaps others) and, despite being the US government's chief legal investigators, did absolutely nothing about it. I would call that dereliction of duty at best and complicity in the crime at worst.
