John Yoo is haunted

Remember John Yoo, the Bush Administration lawyer who was willing to drag his Yale J.D. through the dirt by writing government memos that justified torture? If Yoo thought he could simply walk away from all of the commotion and hide out far away, he was wrong. Here he is (believe it or not) teaching law at Chapman University in Australia. During a recent class, Yoo was haunted by an old “friend” (the video is less than two minutes long):

My question: Is this an improper disruption of a classroom, or is it just desserts?

    great clip – and representative of the Australian version of 'respect for authority'

    If only we had more of this in the States, perhaps we wouldn't have so many people vulnerable to persuation by extreme partisans.

  2. It's hilarious is what it is. I love how the "security" forces is two little old ladies. That man sold America's soul and left every serviceman/servicewoman in our military at greater risk. Getting interrupted at work seems really mild in comparison.

    (Why don't we have war crimes trials yet?)
