Don’t Tell Germany: US Terror War Architect & TORTURE PROPONENT JOHN YOO Appeared On Radio Times This Morning And Spoke At Constituition Center Tonight; By The Way, Yoo Wanted Man In Germany For War Crimes

Join former presidential adviser John Yoo, author of War by Other Means: An Insider’s Accountjohnyoo-big.jpg on the War on Terror, for a look at the Bush administration’s response to the 9/11 tragedy. This event is being produced in collaboration with the Federalist Society.

On September 11, 2001, while America reeled from the day’s cataclysmic events and the majority of officials in Washington, D.C. — including most of the Justice Department — struggled to leave town, John Yoo and a skeletal staff of the Office of Legal Counsel of the Justice Department stayed behind. The day’s attacks called for a response and they quickly found themselves on the phone with the White House, but the scope of the president’s legal authority to act was unclear.

UPDATE: We were just about to type out the disappointing news that Marty Moss-Coane, no shrinking violet when it comes to calling guests on the carpet, had let Mr. Yoo off the hook and never asked him about the pending war crimes charges in Germany, which has become a lead story on NPR’s own news feeds. So we called up the show just to make sure we didn’t miss it when we were in the men’s room or something and spoke with the always pleasant Alan Tu. He took down our number and promised somebody would get back to us with an answer. And just a minute ago that answer came and who should deliver it but MARTY MOSS-COANE herself! WE LOVE, LOVE, LOVE MARTY MOSS-COANE! This is like going to see Fantasia and Mickey Mouse calls you afterwards to apologize for that mess with the brooms and the water. So who cares if she asked John Yoo about what it feels like to have war crimes charges waved in your face, MARTY MOSS-COANE CALLED ME! Me, MARGE! Oh, and for the record she says she meant to ask him about it but “couldn’t get past torture.” No matter, it’s in God’s hands now.
