War by other means

We haven’t gotten to the incredible story of the lawsuit brought against Professor John Yoo on behalf of Jose Padilla, as I understand it, for Yoo’s role in authoring (in my view clearly correct) legal memos advising the president on the law applicable to the detention of enemy combatants. Earlier this week the Yale Daily News reported on the connection of Professor Yoo’s alma mater to the lawsuit against him. Today Professor Yoo comments on the lawsuit in “Terror suspects are waging ‘lawfare’ in U.S.” And they unfortunately have the support of a vast array of American academics, attorneys, judges and officeholders.

JOHN adds: Just be grateful those folks are so patriotic. God only knows what they would do if they weren’t.
