BERKELEY DOES IT AGAIN!

The Berkeley City Council hotly debated academic freedom and torture this week and passed a measure urging the US to prosecute John Yoo for war crimes.  He is a  Boalt Law School professor & was Deputy Assistant Attorney General in 2001-2003, when he wrote the memos justifying torture.  The Council also asked the university to provide alternate classes for students who do not want to attend Yoo’s.

    Look at this–the Senate Armed Services Committee blames top Bush administration officials AND Donald Rumsfeld for the abuse of detainees. See this NY Times article:

    No mention of John Yoo in it, however.
