We Demand An Accounting For War Crimes


By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 14 May 2014

Saturday May 10th a core of 15 anti-torture activists anchored the seventh annual protest of University of California accommodation and promotion of Boalt Hall 'Torture Professor' John Yoo. Defying 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,' Berkeley Law administrators continue to harbor an unrepentant advocate for illegal policies deployed by the Bush regime.

Many graduates and their guests accepted and wore orange ribbons in support for repudiation of U.S. torture practice.

World Can't Wait applauds the potential of this new generation of lawyers and judges to prosecute the crimes of arbitrary detention, torture, and suppression of civil rights prescribed by John Yoo's 'Unitary Executive' theory (that "if the President does it, it's legal").

Professor Yoo not only supports U.S. targeted assassination policy; he complains that President Obamaisn't being hawkish enough in the War on Terror:

"Yoo's flippant attitude toward killing civilians is noteworthy in two ways. First - the obvious - 
is that it reveals a truly sick disregard for the killing of innocent human beings...
The second reason it is noteworthy is that Yoo argues trying to avoid killing civilians who are in the vicinity of enemy combatants doesn't apply 'to wartime operations.' Leave aside the legal reasoning for a moment and consider if Yoo would support the same standard in reverse."
 

A university that allows a war criminal to teach constitutional law under prejudice of 'academic freedom' is protecting war crimes.

 

Fire John Yoo... Close Guantanamo... Ground Killer Drones
