John Yoo's "good faith" defense

| | TrackBacks (0)
"It appears from the data collected in the PHR report [Experiments in Torture, see previous post] that the CIA was using health-care professionals to collect data for two purposes: to try to hone its torture techniques, and to create a "good faith" defense against criminal charges, following the advice of the Justice Department... The PHR report points to the extraordinary steps taken quietly by the Bush Administration to amend the War Crimes Act in 2006, following their sudden realization that government figures faced a real prospect of prosecution for criminal misconduct undertaken on high-level instructions."  - Scott Horton
