Ghosts of Abu Ghraib Reviews
As tempting as it is to turn this review into a political missive, I'll resist doing so more than I have. After this: It's truly astounding to hear John Yoo speak. As with his written material, it's as if he occupies a world all his own (except, unfortunately, many have joined him in this faraway place) - one that blends fantasy and reality legal doctrine with seamless ease. And the documentary didn't even capture a fraction of the fun: we hear nothing, for example, about Yoo's infamous thoughts on the unitary executive or the fourth amendment. Kennedy's documentary wasn't the place for this stuff, of course, but I just can't resist. Maybe someone should make a documentary - you know, one of these "can you f-in believe these people?!" types - about conservative political thought and the war(s). Ah, yes, I know - it's called the New York Times.
