Yoo announces himself as gift to Obama administration

John Yoo, the Bush administration lawyer responsible for justifying 'enhanced interrogation techniques,' launches a counter-attack on the agency that subsequently investigated him. His criticism of the Justice Department's bias and incompetence may convince, but it demonstrates well the problem with Yoo. No matter how strenuously he points out that his clever legal rationalization of torture was not professional misconduct, it doesn't address the question of how moral it was. The public knows the law can be gamed; and yet Yoo seems to have no idea why he is so loathed. [WSJ]
