John Yoo has a deeply self-indulgent, book-promoting essay in the Philadelphia Inquirer today about the legal case filed against him by convicted terrorist Jose Padilla. A commenter on Volokh quotes Yoo, takes his point, and makes him downright ridiculous.
Think about what it would mean if Padilla were to win. Government officials and military personnel have to devise better ways to protect the country from more deadly surprise attacks.Yes that would be horrible.
Too funny. Legal merits aside, I guess we should all be with Padilla now!
