Justice Department Bans Justice for Torturers
The Obama Justice Department has apparently decided that, since torture is not a crime (at least not anything deserving of prosecution), then concocting legal doctrines that unleashed torturers around the world is also no offense.
A Justice Department internal investigation has concluded that John Yoo and Jay Bybee were gulity only of “poor judgment” in their memos which brought the Middle Ages into the new Millennium.
The Washington Post notes: “The conclusion is likely to unsettle <strong>interest groups </strong>that have sought a reckoning for lawyers who made possible brutal interrogation, warrantless wiretapping and other Bush counterterrorism strategies.”
Perhaps the Washington Post believes that only special interests oppose torture????
