The torture that occured under the Bush administration could not have occurred without the golden shield of protection offered by Bush and Cheney’s laywers in the torture memos. Here, eminent trial lawyer and free speech defender Garbus presents the case for the prosecution. As the current Attorney General contemplates the merits of looking back, Garbus, along with other contributors, warn of the hazards of failing to do so. Reminding readers what is at stake, Garbus joins an international chorus of voices calling for the prosecution of the torturer’s laywers.
