Bybee Memo on Torture

Law Prof Michael Froomkin of Discourse.Net has some more analysis of the Bybee torture memo sent to White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales. He says it reads like a one-sided brief.

We'd like to point out that after writing that memo, the Bush team worked hard to get Jay Bybee appointed to the federal court. Bush nominated him for a seat on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in 2002, and he was confirmed and sworn in last year.

Update: The New York Times has more on the Bybee memo .
