Conventions Against Torture

| | TrackBacks (0)
Today, Profs. John Yoo and Robert Delahunty, two authors of the infamous "torture memos" that justified extreme interrogation techniques under the Bush administration, [spoke] at St. Thomas Law School... see 'Torture memo' authors should be held to account.

Law Professor Peter Erlinder denounces the duplicity of the current President who allows war criminals to walk free, and reminds us:

"Profs. Yoo and Delahunty could, in theory, be arrested in Minnesota today, just as Chuckie Taylor [son of former Liberian President, prosecuted for torture] was arrested when he stepped off the plane in Miami." 

The case held extraterritorial torture applicable to US officials. Activists in Minneapolis, and Berkeley CA, will continue to fight for just that.
