"Twisting the law to fit his nefarious agenda isn't new to Yoo," wrote Marjorie Cohn.

"When New Yorker writer Jane Mayer interviewed him, Yoo told her that Congress 'can't prevent the president from ordering torture'. When asked if any law prohibited the president from 'crushing the testicles of the person's child', Yoo responded, 'No treaty'. Mayer then asked him whether another law forbade it. Yoo said, 'I think it depends on why the president thinks he needs to do that'. But the Convention Against Torture, a treaty the U.S. has ratified, outlaws torture without exception."
