The article--"It Could Happen to Yoo: Criminal Prosecution and Accountability" at
regarding a beautiful 42-page order by a judge, states "Usually such things don't strike me as beautiful, but this one says that leading torture lawyer John Yoo can be sued in court by one of his victims. It also says that his arguments for immunity are a load of crap, his arguments for the legality of torture are at least plausibly as fetid a pile of feces as they appear to the naked eye, and the treatment received by Jose Padilla is rather glaringly in conflict with our laws, basic standards of decency, and the wisdom of those who have gone before us and warned against sacrificing our rights on the temple of war."
The article gets Orwellian as it continues "So, while Congress and the Ministry of Truth, er ... I mean the Department of Justice (DOJ), hold off on any attempts to hold anyone accountable for torture until the DOJ's Office of Professional Responsibility releases a report on the conduct of Yoo, Jay Bybee, and Steven Bradbury -- a report already delayed for six weeks of integrating edits made by the three men who are supposedly the subject of the report -- a judge, by simply comparing Yoo's publicly available confessions in the form of torture memos with actual legal standards, has produced the outline of an indictment that a special prosecutor could pick up and use to put John Yoo behind bars."
The article's author, David Swanson, is pessimistic that a special prosecutor will be appointed by Attorney General Eric Holder so he provides us with a method to demonstrate with a Torture Accountability Action Day, as soon as June 25th, 2009.
Regarding just how guilty Yoo is the article "John Yoo ordered to testify on torture." at
