John Yoo Really Is Off the Hook

In more good news for notorious UC Berkeley law professor John Yoo, President Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, says the president does not think Bush-era policymakers who enabled torture should be prosecuted. Emanuel made the statement on yesterday’s “This Week” on ABC TV. Last week, Obama said that CIA agents and military interrogators who followed Yoo’s legal memos from when he worked for the Bush Department of Justice would not be prosecuted. It now appears that the Obama administration has no intention of going after anyone involved in torturing prisoners in violation of federal and international laws. How that’s for change we can believe in?
