Tell John Yoo That Torture Is A Crime (4:49)

Cover of 9/11 Truth & Justice Songs

From 9/11 Truth & Justice Songs and 1 other release

John Yoo wrote legal briefs for the Bush-Cheney regime to justify torturing prisoners who were held for years without charges. According to the International Red Cross, over 100 prisoners died in these secret torture sessions. Some people defend John Yoo’s position as a professor of law at UC Berkeley on grounds of “free speech” and “academic freedom”. However, as lawyer Dan Siegel clarifies, the issue is about what Yoo did while on leave as legal counsel to the Bush-Cheney regime, which constitutes criminality, not his academic work. This song was written by Vic Sadot after participating in actions in Berkeley, CA with Code Pink Goldengate. National Lawyers Guild, Progressive Democrats of America, National Accountability Action Network, American Psychological Association, SF Bay Area World Can’t Wait, and Boalt Alliance to Abolish Torture. * See the related YouTube video clip featuring legendary Berkeley Law School Boalt Hall alumnus, Dan Siegel, titled “Demonstration Against Torture and John Yoo - Dan Siegel”, which was done as a report for No Lies Radio in California by Vic Sadot.
