The infamous John Yoo legal memorandum justifying treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay has finally been declassified. You can read the whole, sorry thing now, though not too long ago it was just too sensitive. Turns out it’s just too damn stupid, so poorly reasoned the feds abandoned it. Thanks to the ACLU it’s finally seeing the light of day.
Today the Pentagon has also decided to rethink its intelligence unit. Remember when “military intelligence” was the classic example of an oxymoron? And remember when we thought having the military spy on dissidents was unconstitutional?
Looks as if “constitutional” may be coming back in fashion.
