05/14/12 – Francis Boyle – The Scott Horton Show

by | May 14, 2012 | Interviews

Francis A. Boyle, Professor at the University of Illinois College of Law, discusses the conviction of former President Bush, Dick Cheney and six members of the administration for war crimes (in absentia, in a Malaysian court); why the “torture memos,” concocted by John Yoo and Jay Bybee, amount to criminal conspiracy and can’t be excused as legal counsel; the Ninth Circuit Court’s questionable rejection of Jose Padilla’s torture suit against Yoo; evidence that the Obama administration hasn’t closed the secret prisons or stopped torture; and Boyle’s pending case in the International Criminal Court against the Bush administration’s primary actors.
