Judge Bybee and the Torture Memos:

The Washington Post has an interesting front-page story today on Judge Jay Bybee, who was the head of DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel from November 2001 to March 2003. I find it a bit hard to know what to make of the story, as it’s pretty vague and the sources are mostly anonymous; the story indicates that Bybee has regrets about the torture memos he signed, but it’s not clear exactly what about them he regrets. Still, it’s a pretty interesting story.
