Justice Bybee's Torture Memo

Bybee Torture Memo

The full text of Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Justice Jay Bybee's Torture Memo, dated August 2002 is linked above. I find it fascinating that an LDS (Mormon) trained attorney (BYU School of Law) and a member of this same faith is directly responsible for the use of torture, including water-boarding, by the U.S. Government and the subsequent shame and international condemnation rightfully heaped onto the Bush Administration for its blatant violation of fundamental human rights.
