Torture-monger John Yoo’s new book, ‘Crisis and Command‘ is on Amazon now, and merry prankster General JC Christian and his supporters have managed to make his subversive review of the book the “most helpful” one among the reader reviews, and therefore the first one people read.
Here’s a taste:
Cheney knew what had to be done. Saddam had to be tied to Al Qaeda. As a serious man, he understood that if evidence of such a tie was unavailable, it had to be created. Detainees would need to be coerced into making false confessions. It would require torture, an act that was considered unconstitutional at the time. Cheney turned to another serious man, Yoo–a man who would later tell Congress that the President can legally order a suspect to be burned alive or that his children be tortured–to write a justification for ignoring the Fifth and Eighth Amendments.
Yoo served the Dark Lord well by not only justifying torture but by destroying the Fourth Amendment to allow domestic spying as well.
I’m giving this book five stars–not because it is well argued or well written (it isn’t) but because, like Yoo, I want to help shape our nation according to Lord Cheney’s righteously Stalinesque vision.
Be sure to visit Amazon and give JC’s review a ‘very helpful’ vote.
