Glen Greenwald on Responsibility for Torture
Glen Greenwald of Salon writes extensively on torture. In this article he strongly disagrees with what may be the Obama administration position that low level personnel who did the torture may be the only ones held accountable, not the high level officials that ordered it. One particularly interesting point is a link he provides to a report that says John Yoo was chosen by Cheney and Addington to write the torture memo because he would approve what they wanted.
