Morally impaired professor John Yoo. Now there is a man this country should sue.
May his days writing White House memos and briefs bring him to trial and eternal grief.
This is the lawyer who “Torture” he said,“is hard to define and all in your head.
Besides with all the time bombs a ticking, mustn’t we give those suspects a kicking?”
True, dogs, sticks and stones might break a few captive bones,
But, near drowning it seems, shouldn’t even be counted as mean.

Jack Bauer did it and look at his result. To not follow his lead would be a big insult.
Jailing forever without charge, counsel or trial? As to any Amendments, John Yoo’s in denial.

A thank you from Bush was his apparent sole goal. For that he sold out his profession and soul.

Nazi lawyers and judges caught Nuremberg ire. That too was for fulfilling their boss’s desire.
Unless for this there’s some stiff punishment, others will assume rules are meant to be bent.
