  •  I do not defend Yoo (1+ / 0-)

    Nothing I say here is a defense of Yoo.  Yours is an unfair charge.

    •  Unfare to whom? (0+ / 0-)

      To Yoo and the others who justified torture to invade a country that has nothing to do with 9/11? And do you think that when we say that Bush is  guilty of torture is also unfair? Or do you think that rendition and other inhumane policies were fair? Or torturing people by the name of America and the American people was fair to the Americans themselves?

        You unfairly asserted that I am trying to defend Yoo.

        •  When a rapist say that he raped so and so (0+ / 0-)

          that makes him a rapist, and a criminal even if his victims did not file a law suit and even if the law enforcement didn't come after him, he is saying it,  admitting it;  hence it  convicts him

          •  I've dealt with the difference between allegation (0+ / 0-)

            and conviction and the primacy in our legal system in innocent until proven guilty.

            But all  that is immaterial to your unfair assertion that I try to defend Yoo.

            I am not.  Nothing I I have written here can be construed as such.
