Pardon CIA Interrogators?

Columnist Debra J. Saunders notes U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder playes a key role in the pardon of millionire fugitive Marc Rich and the commuations of sentence granted to sixteen FALN terrorists (the later having not even applied for clemency). Saunders thus writes:
The Clinton Justice Department didn't even make the 16 terrorists disclose pertinent information about the crimes they committed, just as they tied no strings around Rich. Yet 10 years later, Holder's Justice Department won't give a break to CIA officials desperate to stop another terrorist attack ... It's true, the CIA interrogators may lack the political connections enjoyed by Rich and the FALN guys. But maybe this once, Holder can overlook that.
