(Newser) – Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer doesn’t think there should be an investigation of his boss’s torture program. But “I’ll be proud to testify if I get a subpoena,” he said during a panel discussion yesterday. “I’m proud of what we did to protect this country.” When a fellow panelist suggested a special prosecutor, Vanity Fair reports, Fleischer shot back, “That assumes a crime has been committed.”
