Mukasey's Letter: Not Good Enough

JURIST Guest Columnist Benjamin Davis of the University of Toledo College of Law says that Judge Michael Mukasey's written response to Senate Judiciary Committee follow-up inquiries concerning his views on the legality of waterboarding and torture demonstrate views of America's obligations under international law so limited and problematic that he should not be confirmed...

The first argument, that Mukasey is making veiled threats to Congressmen who might be complicit in knowledge of torture, is very incisive. It probably applies to many of the regime's crimes, including 9/11.
