Lawless Torture Memo Author Calls Obama Lawless

John Yoo, author of the Bush Administration’s laughably wrong legal justification for torture, accuses President Obama of flouting the law by overruling DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel’s determination that the continuing military action in Libya is illegal. Because, as John Yoo knows better than anyone, real presidents stack their OLC with substanceless hacks who will say whatever they want to do is lawful, rather than hiring lawyers with integrity and then overruling them.
