Via the King of Zembla:
Witness the following exchange, from a Dec. 1 debate between [UC Berkeley Professor John Yoo] and Doug Cassel, posted at Revolution Online:
CASSEL: If the president deems that he’s got to torture somebody, including by crushing the testicles of the person’s child, there is no law that can stop him?
YOO: No treaty.
CASSEL: Also no law by Congress — that is what you wrote in the August 2002 memo…
YOO: I think it depends on why the President thinks he needs to do that.
Let us pray this is a fake. [UPDATE 1/11/06: It might be.] Meanwhile, seems like a question to ask Alito. Surely he wouldn’t say this was something likely to come before the Court? Would he?
