On Torture Memo Authors John Yoo & Jay Bybee


By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 10 December 2012

by San Francisco World Can't Wait.  "Let them die and decrease the surplus population." Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol Scrooge and Company torture health care.The Berkeley Federalist Society has assigned Torture Memo author John Yoo(yes, the guy who defines severe pain amounting to torture as that occasioned by "serious physical injury, such as death, organ failure, or serious impairment of body functions") to make the case against what has come to be termed 'Obamacare'.

Thursday, January 10 at 12:40 pm, Boalt Hall, Room 105
on the eve of the 11 year anniversary of Guantanamo.

Almost three years ago Truthout noted that while it may seem like a
stretch to talk about health care and torture in the same breath, there is
a direct link between the two issues. Indeed, it was a Medicare benefits
statute and other health care provisions that were used to form the basis
for one of two August 2002 torture memos (http://tinyurl.com/bgyx6gb).

Despite the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility
finding that professor Yoo and his boss, now federal district court judge
Jay Bybee, were guilty of "professional misconduct" warranting referral to
their states' bar associations to face disciplinary action including
revocation of their law licenses, Berkeley Law administrators continue to
provide a soapbox for the rantings of an unrepentant advocate for human
suffering.

We will not let this go unchallenged.
