John Yoo Protesters Arrested, Sent to Gitmo

Four protesters were arrested outside the School of Law at the University of California at Berkeley campus Monday while calling for the dismissal of John Yoo. Mr. Yoo, a tenured professor of law at UC Berkeley, was the Deputy Assistant Attorney General under G.W. Bush whose memoranda justified waterboarding and other actions considered torture under U.S. and international law.

Mr. Yoo returned to Berkeley yesterday from low-profile stints at a DC think tank and an obscure institution in Orange County where no one reads newspapers.

Okay, we really don’t know what happened to the arrested protesters; there’s nothing in the newspapers about that. It’s just like they … disappeared ….
