“The hippies and the protesters ruined my life,” cried little wussy torture boy John Yoo.
Give me a break. A penchant for the sadistic in writing legal memos turned scrutiny on John Yoo. A hankering to undo a world wide consensus on the treatment of prisoners made John Yoo’s name synonymous with torture.
And what would he do differently if he had H.G. Wells’ time machine?

“They [the torture memos] lack a certain polish, I think — would have been better to explain government policy rather than try to give unvarnished, straight-talk legal advice. I certainly would have done that differently.” AlterNet do Org
He’d pretty up the text. Awesome.
No wonder Yoo’s colleague is calling for torture boy’s job.
Out of a concern for justice, a concern for humanity, and a concern for our reputation as a university, to dismiss Professor John Yoo from membership in our university.” Brad DeLong, a UC Berkeley economics professor
Yoo remains the man who believes it is acceptable to crush the testicles of a suspect’s child to get vital information.
I don’t know? Why is he pariah?
