The Torture “Crew” Weighs In On Kagan

Posted by on May 19, 2010 in Opinion | No Comments

I am sure like me you’ve be waiting to hear what John Yoo thinks about Elena Kagan. It appears the Philadelphia Inquirer must have been curious so they gave him a few column inches today.

What if a college dean barred from campus recruiting any law firm that provided free representation to al-Qaida terrorists? Suppose she believes that the firms are providing aid and comfort to the enemy in wartime.

Here is another “what if” for you. What if one of the nation’s premier law schools barred hiring former White House architects of illegal torture policies? Suppose he happened to believe that the President has the power to “attack apartment buildings and office complexes inside the United States, deploy high-tech surveillance against U.S. citizens and potentially suspend First Amendment freedom-of-the-press rights.” When hold legal opinions like that what he thinks of Kagan isn’t worth the pixels it consumed.
