Never mind earlier reports that Bush Attorney General Alberto Gonzales endorsed Eric Holder’s decision to investigate possible CIA prisoner abuse.

My colleague Jason Ryan charts the about face, with the latest from Gonzales:

"I don't support the investigation by the department because this is a matter that has already been reviewed thoroughly and because I believe that another investigation is going to harm our intelligence gathering capabilities and that's a concern that's shared by career intelligence officials and so for those reasons I respectfully disagree with the decision."
