Yoo Besmirches Legacy of Jefferson

Waterboarding Too Dangerous, Internal DoD Memo Reveals

Jeffrey Kaye, Truthout: "In recent weeks, former Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen has been on a public relations campaign defending the efficacy of waterboarding, going so far as to say that the torture technique sanctioned by the Bush administration is not only safe, but is in line with the teachings of the Catholic Church.... On Tuesday, in an interview with 'Fox News,' John Yoo, the former Justice Department attorney who was the principal author of legal memoranda that cleared the way for CIA interrogators to waterboard 'war on terror' detainees and subject them to other brutal torture techniques, asserted that waterboarding was harmless."

Yoo Besmirches Legacy of Jefferson

Ray McGovern, Truthout: "Initially I was shocked at the thought of the University of Virginia (UVA) welcoming former Justice Department lawyer John Yoo to the 'Academical Village' founded by Thomas Jefferson. There was something very wrong about that picture. Was it not Jefferson who condemned tyrannical acts - including ones that fell far short of waterboarding - in the Declaration of Independence?"
