What happens when you fail to prosecute key government contractors for war crimes and crimes against humanity?

The widely discredited Bush-era legal theories of Torture Memo author John Yoo become "normalized."

Law schools adopt the un-constitutional construct of 'unitary executive theory' in defense of imperial warfare.

The human cost of U.S. wars of terror grows.

800 years of Habeas Corpus law, the right to know why you are being held captive by the State, comes undone.

All of the above.

Thanks to the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated a lawsuit against CACI Premier Technology, for the corporation's role in torture at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Today's ruling repudiates application of immunity to private contractors: "The military cannot lawfully exercise its authority by directing a contractor to engage in unlawful activity." 

"The prohibition on torture and inhuman treatment is a universal and absolute legal requirement; it is not a policy judgment left to the discretion of the military or its contractors," said Center for Constitutional Rights Legal Director Baher Azmy.

Indict John Yoo, Saturday October 29, 1:00 pm, Boalt Hall Room 105, for his work product at the Department of Justice. His lawless detention policy resulted in the torture and death of scores of illegally held prisoners suffering the U.S. war of terror on the Middle East. Yoo authorized waterboarding and other 'enhanced interrogation techniques' applied to prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and other U.S.-funded torture sites around the globe.

The 'Torture Professor' belongs in prison, not mentoring the next generation of lawyers and judges. Our mission, in concert with people of conscience across the country, is to prosecute key officials for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
