So we told you earlier today that the Philadelphia Inquirer has signed up Bush torture guru John Yoo as a columnist.
But it gets worse. Greg Sargent points out that in March, Yoo used his new perch to attack civil libertarians who have criticized the Bush administration’s expansion of executive power — an expansion in which Yoo played a key role.
As Greg notes, those same civil libertarians are now pushing for an investigation into the Bush torture program — something that could well result in Yoo being criminally charged. So you’d think that Yoo’s editors would have raised some concerns when he turned in a column self-servingly attacking his attackers.
