Linda Greenhouse, former Supreme Court correspondent for The New York Times, lectures in Barrows Hall on the Bush administration's legal handling of Guantanamo Bay detainees.

 The audience asked questions about what Greenhouse thought of Boalt Hall School of Law professor John Yoo, who wrote memos for the Bush administration that provided the legal basis for detention and interrogation techniques such as torture.

Greenhouse responded by quoting Sen. Barack Obama, saying, "You're asking profound questions that are above my pay grade."
