John Yoo, master of irony

So you’re getting a lot of pressure from your boss, who’s in high CYA mode since he’s already approved torture, to figure out how to make it legal. And (as Condi Rice told that student at Stanford) the White House was really freaked out after 9/11 (especially after they ignored that “Bin Laden determined to strike in US” daily brief). And Dick Cheney is saying, in that scary voice of his, “Torture works.”

But now John Yoo is worried that Sonia Sotomayor might make political, emotional, “results-oriented” decisions.
