You are right. They did not provide these legal opinions in "good faith", and you don't have to be an attorney to figure that out. They didn't even bother googling for previous cases of waterboarding convictions in the USA. If they had, they would have seen that there was a conviction in Texas during Reagan's admin, one from the second world war, and another from the Viet Nam war. All found guilty and convicted.
The legal opinion wasn't sought until after the Bush administration had decided to use torture. It was obviously written to accommodate a crime. They should be immediately dis-barred and then convicted. That would be a good fist step in repairing the damage to keep this from happening again. As it stands now, all any president has to do in order to commit crimes is find a few hair splitting attorneys to write up an "ill legal opinion" and tell them it is ok.

I love how ready people are to cry conspiracy theory and scream justice is being denied. These things take time. They have to give me a reason to think that they will not move forward with this. Some of you are expecting them to do everything in such a small period of time that they're catching unrealistic expectations from the left AND right. The report is coming. Just chill.

RichMisty is certainly gung-ho but she doesn't lie.

Aren't you concerned that people were tortured in YOUR name.
If not, can we arrest, indefinitely detain and torture your family to keep America safe?

is that how you can afford to sit on Huff 24-7-365 posting lies and hate and FAKE photos about our soldiers, Mel? is that why you're obsessed with accusing others of kid sex abuse?
or were you the priest?

Get help, Mel, soon

Free Don Siegelman and Paul Minor. Holder should research what Bush's Dept of Justice did to them too.

Like Jesus turning water into wine?
Like having faith in life after death?
Like doing nothing while murder is the norm?
Like expecting justice to merit out by doing nothing but hoping?
.......

So true, the quote by Voltaire!

I did not get that link until recently... I missed the article when it first came out, but I had already read Jane Mayer's book.

I was able to contact Ms Mayer thru the New Yorker recently and she was able to answer some of my questions. This is a serious case. I was informed that more evidence was presented at the start of the investigation than was available for the Pinochet trial after the investigation was completed. And the Judge is a "bulldog".

and here's an interview Terry Gross did with Philippe Sands the author of 'Torture Team' . It is thrilling - simply thrilling - to listen to.

Yes It was wrong to keep the Bush Holdover Lawyers- To Act as Moles- That was bad Justice to the name of the Constitutional Rule of Law and International Laws.

Here it comes, the political prosecution of legal opinion doomed to fail in court. Only a sideshow to divert and distract from Obama's over-arching failures so far. Brother, can you spare a trillion?

This has already been assigned to a NON-PARTISAN Judge for prosecution. The same guy that popped Pinochet. See links above you.

How is it "legal opinion" that torture is illegal?

This isn't about prosecuting someone for trying to pass business friendly legislation, it is about breaking the law.

Bush Lawyers-

Is this when we get to learn the facts- James Comey detest Gonzales as well as Ashcroft blames Gonzales- the LAWYER at White House then to DOJ- which put into play illegal programs- And Gonzales might talk- If he is not living in FEAR- the Same fear that was used on Torture Victims
Gonzales has three sons-

What will happen? Loyality OR Fvck IT -Every man for himself?

I wonder if Yoo would advocate cru.sh.ing his own tes.tic.les to get the right information.
