Bybee and Yoo skate under Obama Justice Dept
It's just "poor judgment," not torture.


Bush administration lawyers who wrote memos blessing the waterboarding of terrorism suspects and other harsh interrogation tactics "exercised poor judgment" but will not face discipline for their actions, according to Justice Department correspondence sent to lawmakers late Friday.

The long-awaited conclusion marks a turnaround from recommendations against two of the lawyers by the department's Office of Professional Responsibility. OPR, which conducts ethics investigations of Justice Department attorneys, twice urged that allegations against John C. Yoo and Jay S. Bybee be sent to state legal disciplinary authorities for further action, the correspondence said.

From "no prosecution of absolutely anyone" to "keep your job and any dicipline would be out of place". Wow. <takes a deep breath but head still explodes> We have the bad as a preference over the worse. There's higher moral ground in an overflowing Porta-Potty. </rant>.
