The Four Torture Memos, Eichmann, and the Obama Administration, Part II

On April 23rd I posted the first part of a three part essay that deals with the torture practiced by the American government. Since then I have been preoccupied with other matters; thus Part II was not written until now. Because there has been a two week hiatus, the first part is being reposted, along with the second part. Those of you who previously read the first part may wish to simply skip over it and go directly to Part II.

Re: The Four Torture Memos, Eichmann, And The Obama Administration.

PART I

I have read the four memoranda that were recently released by the DOJ and authorized torture. Permit me to invent a similar but short memo that will allow the reader, without reading the approximately 120 densely packed pages of the four memos, to grasp their style, their character, their techniques, their aims, and, inherently and avoidably, the nature of the people who wrote or signed off on them: John Yoo, Jay Bybee and Steven Bradbury.
