Mephistopheles stonewalls



John Yoo, one of the key architects of the Bush/Cheney torture policy, at House Judiciary Committee hearings yesterday. I think there's no comment necessary.

  1. After that, it's unfortunate for Yoo that liberals carrying guns is like ... now so totally legal.

  2. Yoo's argument is brilliant: after all, years ago, it was inconceivable by most Americans that an American President would order (or otherwise permit) water boarding of, stripping naked (which almost automatically leads to sexual abuse or humiliation), threatening with dogs, and urinating upon suspects either.

  3. My favorite John Yoo "moment" is his contention in a 2005 forum at Notre Dame that George W. Bush has the constitutional power to torture children, even to crush their testicles. I guess that includes doing it personally.

  4. Is there a YouTube video of Yoo at Notre Dame talking about crushing young boys' testicles or of Congressmen asking him about his 2005 statements?
