John Yoo's Tortured Explanations

Writing for Truthout, Michael Winship examines the recently released legal memo by John Yoo, former deputy in the Office of Legal Council. Winship writes: "Contrary to claims the abuses at Abu Ghraib and other prisons were contrived by subordinates on the ground - i.e., 'hicks with sticks' - Yoo's 81-page memo rationalizes motive and establishes the bar for virtually every human rights violation that has taken place in the name of fighting the global war on terrorism."
