New If anyone should be hauled before another Nuremberg style
tribunal is Cal law professor John Yoo. [link|http://www.villagevoice.com/news/0728,hentoff,77169,6.html|More Hentoff] :

Suddenly, rising from the audience, Anne-Marie Slaughter, dean of the Woodrow Wilson School, confronted Yoo: "What I heard you say was that the president could order torture without restraint from Congress. . . . That the president can order torture of prisoners of war in any way, any time, contravenes absolutely everything this country is supposed to stand for. . . . "

Yoo: "A lot of the arguments you make about America's standing in the world . . . those are all fine arguments, but those are not constitutional arguments. Those are arguments on how, as a society, we should exercise this constitutional power. . . . "

Slaughter: "If I hear you correctly, you are telling me that you would tell your client, the president of the United States, 'You may order pulling out somebody's fingernails. You may order having somebody's family member killed in front of them to extract information.'. . . Are you really saying that our Constitution allows a president to do that?"

Yoo: "Is there any provision that prevents him from doing that?"

New A common academic viewpoint - just like the leaders . . .
. . of the Khmer Rouge. See my post [link|http://z.iwethey.org/forums/render/content/show?contentid=291139|Of course I don't mean to pick on . . .].

To many academics any amount of death and suffering is justified in the name of "correctness" and truth is whatever they say it is.

I repeat: keep them on campus doing absurd research projects. Whatever funding those projects cost, it's a comparative bargain.
