Should Bush Administration Lawyers Be Prosecuted For Authorizing Torture?, Claire Finkelstein, Michael Lewis

University of Pennsylvania Law Review Online

The February 19th, 2010 release of a memorandum by the Justice Department clearing former Bush Administration lawyers John Yoo and Jay Bybee of any professional misconduct for their roles in authoring the so-called torture memos may have closed the chapter on the case against Bush Administration lawyers for formal sanctions from the United States government.
