From Our “Couldn’t Happen to A Nicer Guy” Department…

Bush Administration Torture Mouthpieces are under fire.

Frankly, disbarment is too good for them.  These are exactly the kind of people who give lawyers a bad name by pimping out their principles and commitment to the rule of law for a mess of pottage.  As attorneys, we of course owe an ethical duty to our clients, but that is tempered by our oath to uphold the law and the Constitution.  We are specifically forbidden to break the law at the behest of our clients.  Yoo, Albert Gozales and Bybee are the worst kind of “shysters,” the kind who strain and stretch the law to the breaking point so they can tell a client what he wants to hear, not what he SHOULD hear, i.e., the truth.
