| | TrackBacks (0)

...the Office of Professional Responsibility report is just the beginning of a bigger and more important battle.   Legal ethics investigators concluded that former Office of Legal Counsel lawyers John Yoo and Jay Bybee committed "professional misconduct" in advising the Bush administration that it was not against the law to torture, humiliate and abuse detainees despite longstanding domestic and international prohibitions against doing so. The battle now will be over whether the U.S. government will meet its obligations to thoroughly investigate what happened and hold the perpetrators accountable. - Daphne Eviatar, Senior Associate in Human Rights First's Law and Security Program
