Carol references the most seedy characters for some godless reason.

In explaining the Yoo Doctrine, Yoo made the following statements during a December 1, 2005 debate in Chicago, Illinois with Notre Dame Law School Professor Doug Cassel:

Cassel: If the President deems that he’s got to torture somebody, including by crushing the testicles of the person’s child, there is no law that can stop him?

Yoo: No treaty.

Cassel: Also no law by Congress. That is what you wrote in the August 2002 memo.

Yoo: I think it depends on why the President thinks he needs to do that.

There you go again, eddy. Suggesting what doesn't exist. Yoo was asked, and you notice this if you read without the bias of your BDS, if there was a law preventing Bush from such things, not whether he would do it. Your irrational hatred of the man assumes he's capable of resorting to such a tactic. There's something quite godless about that. What evidence do you have that Bush is the type of person that would use someone's child in such a manner? Don't bother, putz, there is none.

More to the point (something from which eddy will preditably stray) is that Yoo's comments are reasonable and are points with which I am in total agreement.

Yoo must be completley mad. Even with the Spanish Inquistion one was given a trial. Even two milleniums ago they had trials. Both Plato and Jesus had trials. Where as Yoo thinks the Prez is a unitary executive able to torture and incarcerate anyone indefinitely without a trial. A real wacko!

Plato had a trial? Do you perhaps have some information on the reason for and the outcome of that trial? You inference seems to indicated the result of said trial was death.....would you please expand....?

In previous comment, I meant Socates' trial not Plato. But Plato wrote his "Apology" and went on to found his academy to influence politics.

I don't recall eddy. Did they try every German POW while the war was still ongoing, or did they wait until after to try them? I'm thinking after. Why would or should we waste time trying these bastards, particularly when they fight in such cowardly ways? They can cool their heels for the duration.

Editor, back when you were Dittohead, you said that you were through with Carol's Blog. Why do you come back under a new name now?
