John Yoo is a disgrace to this nation for his actions in promoting torture in the Bush Administration. This answer in a Q&A session tells you all you need to know about his man.
I’m just going to quote Orrin Kerr on this:
“Now that I’m not in the government, part of my role, because I have a certain amount of expertise, is to try to keep the government honest.”
