DOJ Report on the Torture Memos?:
According to Michael Isikoff of Newsweek, DOJ might end up releasing a report from its Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) reprimanding the authors of the Bush Administration's "torture memos" for failing to maintain the professional standards of the Justice Department. The report might then be referred to the state bars of the individuals who authored the memos for possible disciplinary action. According to Isikoff, "OPR investigators focused on whether the memo's authors deliberately slanted their legal advice to provide the White House with the conclusions it wanted, according to three former Bush lawyers who asked not to be identified discussing an ongoing probe."
