Dude, it’s Berkeley!
And John Yoo, the plump, nebbishy law instructor who loved to write memos justifying torture and the Unitary Executive, just came face to face with the ghost of Mario Savio!
The home of free speech has freely spoken about Yoo and his role in unleashing one of the darkest episodes in recent American history. The Berkeley City Council voted on Monday to demand that the US Attorney for NorCal and the Attorney General for the US prosecute Yoo for war crimes.
The proposal came out of the city’s “Peace and Justice Commission.”
Yeah, dude…Berkeley has a Peace and Justice Commission! Of course, many will laugh at the idea that wacky Berkeley is passing measures on such things…that they have this commission…or that they voted many years ago to declare the city a “nuclear-free zone.”
But, doesn’t kinda make you smile…particularly since it won’t make Yoo smile?!
I mean, there seems to be zero chance that Yoo, or Dr. Frankencheney’s version of Igor—David Addington, will ever be brought to account for what they did. At least, not if we leave it up to the Feds, to the leadership of the Dems or to the media.
