News Talk Online February 26, 2010: Torture Attorneys Off The Hook

Today a congressional subcommittee heard testimony on the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility's report that concluded that two attorneys who advised the Bush administration on enhanced interrogation techniques committed professional misconduct.

But no action was taken against the lawyers, John Yoo and Jay Bybee, because Associate Deputy Attorney General David Margolis concluded that they displayed only poor judgment.

Joining us on News Talk Online on the Paltalk News Network to discuss the infamous "torture memo" and why he believes action should have been taken against the pair was Stephen Vladeck, law professor at American University's Washington College of Law.
