If Only US Law Applied to the US Government
Antiwar / Paul Craig Roberts

The U.S. government does not have a monopoly on hypocrisy, but no other government can match the hypocrisy of the U.S. government. It is now well documented and known all over the world that the U.S. government tortured detainees at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo and that the U.S. government has had people kidnapped and "renditioned," that is, transported to Third World countries, such as Egypt, to be tortured. Also documented and well known is the fact that the U.S. Department of Justice provided written memos justifying the torture of detainees. One torture advocate who wrote the DOJ memos that gave the green light to the Bush regime's use of torture is John Yoo, who somehow secured a U.S. Justice Department appointment and a tenured professorship at the University of California, Berkeley, Boalt Hall School of Law.
