WeAreChange RI, Boston Confront John Yoo


John Yoo

This man has no conscience. He has clearly advocated the torture of children in the name of Empire. There is no defense for espousing such barbarism.

What gets me the most about these WAC videos, and all confrontation videos, isn't the liar being publicly called out for his or her crimes. It's the sycophantic audience fawning over these sociopaths as if they contribute anything progressive to our shared society - that goes for audience and John Yoo alike in this case. Disgusting.

Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained by violence.

Yoo: "No treaty."

Cassel: "Also no law by Congress? That is what you wrote in the August 2002 memo [that went to the president]."

Yoo: "I think it depends on why the president thinks he needs to do that."


Keep in mind that most of

Keep in mind that most of the time at events like these the audience is not just some random passers-by, they are a narrowly selected slice of the society.

My guess would be that in the streets of most towns here in the Northeast Mr Yoo would have been received in a less-than-friendly fashion.
