The Trial of John Yoo

I have just returned from a debate on presidential power at Chapman University Law School. In retrospect, the event should more properly have been called “The Trial of John Yoo.” And strikingly, it was Yoo who cast himself in the role of defendant.

The Labor Department’s report, released Friday, showed…

Believe it or not, The Lord of Darkness (aka Dick Cheney) will be coming to here to raise some money for a good friend of his.
