Torture Whitewash: How “Professional Misconduct” Became “Poor Judgment” in the OPR Report - Here's my take on the DoJ report into how John Yoo and Jay Bybee deliberately twisted the law in an attempt to redefine and justify torture, and how one man - David Margolis - shamefully overruled the damning and accurate findings. Don't let this be the end of the story!
