President Bush announced today that he is re-nominating Steven Bradbury to be head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, despite the Senate’s objections. Bradbury came under criticism last fall “when it was disclosed that he was the author of a pair of secret legal opinions that endorsed rough techniques for suspects in the custody of the Central Intelligence Agency.” More on Bradbury’s history with torture here.
