JUSTICE DEPARTMENT LETS TORTURE LAWYERS OFF WITH BARELY A SLAP
Poor judgment indeed. Yoo and Bybee are now well known for their role in enabling the atrocities that went on in black sites and at Guantanamo. Waterboarding. Extreme sleep deprivation. Stress positions. Some detainees were tortured to death. We all know the results of those legal memos. . .
The OLC is tasked with providing the executive branch legal advice. They're the President's lawyers. So that makes the OLC's clients the highest levels of the Bush administration. There's no denying it: senior Bush administration officials knowingly authorized torture, and the OLC lawyers gave them the false legal framework to carry it out.
Don't let them get away with it. Send a message to Attorney General Eric Holder now. It isn't too late to demonstrate this country's commitment to the rule of law.
AFTER DOWNING STREET - Yoo and Bybee are openly guilty of conspiracy to engage in aggressive war, banned by the U.N. Charter and Article VI of the U.S. Constitution, and of conspiracy to torture, a felony, and to spy without warrants, banned by the Fourth Amendment. Their memos are public. . . . Yoo's and Bybee's actions, no matter what you make of them, consist entirely in authorship of a series of written documents available for all to read. And those documents constitute overwhelming grounds for impeachment and indictment.
