WASHINGTON (AP) — House intelligence chairman Mike Rogers says the Justice Department should stop investigating CIA interrogators for alleged abuse of detainees under the Bush administration. Rogers says the interrogators' work helped lead to the killing of terror mastermind Osama bin Laden.

In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, obtained by The Associated Press, the Michigan Republican says the interrogation program was a "vital part of the chain" that led to the successful raid on bin Laden's hideout in Pakistan two weeks ago. The Justice Department on Tuesday said "no comment."

Since 2009, the Justice Department has been investigating cases involving CIA interrogation tactics, including what the CIA inspector general called a mock execution.

There's no indication that the interrogations under investigation are related to bin Laden's capture.
