Will U.S. Stymie Spain’s Investigation of Yoo?

Two Spanish judges are now investigating Bush-era lawyers, including UC Berkeley law school professor John Yoo, for their roles in authorizing torture, according to legal writer and journalist Scott Horton. But Horton notes in a piece on Huffington Post that US Attorney General Eric Holder could stymie those investigations if he refuses to answer legal inquires officially made by the Spanish judges. The judges have given Holder until the end of October to answer questions about the roles played by Bush administration lawyers in the torture of Spanish citizens at the US prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
