the legacy of Boalt Hall?

according to news reports over the weekend, Attorney General Holder has decided on a "narrow" investigation into torture. In fact, it's so narrow that it won't investigate any of the torture that was authorized by DOJ functionary John Yoo at all. Using inverted pretzel logic, they are apparently going to go after those who failed to follow John Yoo's directives. 

Accommodation of John Yoo's directives effectively validates the idea "that obscure Justice Department officials can be granted the authority to essentially immunize officials at all levels of the government." See Tortured logic.
