Poll: Americans split over investigating torture allegations

A new McClatchy-Ipsos poll found that 46 percent of Americans oppose and 41 percent support the creation of a commission to investigate how the U.S. government interrogated detainees captured during the Bush administration's war on terror. The public is similarly split on whether to prosecute the government officials who authorized interrogation techniques that are found to be torture.
