Is this your America?
The long saught DoJ "Torture Memo" written by John Yoo, offering a defense to George W. Bush and his sadistic friends to order the torture, and even killing of detainees has finally been made available. Not by the DoJ to Congress as they'd long sought, but the ACLU via a FOIA request. (Thank you, ACLU!)
Yoo's document is some 80 pages long, offering what he feels --- or what the Administration wanted him to feel --- is a reasonable legal defense for the use of torture, even where it is explicitly disallowed by international treaties to which the U.S. has signed on.
Paul Kiel at TPMMuckraker, who offers his own summary on all of this, has posted one of the more remarkable sections here.
