John Yoo Endorses John McCain
Washington, D.C. - Former Justice Department attorney John Yoo, notorious for being one of the primary authors of the policy which resulted in the institutionalization of torture during the Bush administration, has formally endorsed Senator John McCain in his bid to become the next president of the United States.
Speaking at a special gathering of the Heritage Foundation, John Yoo said, "Today, I am announcing my strong endorsement of John McCain. Why am I doing this? Well, the answer is simple. When push came to shove, McCain was willing to drop his long stated opposition to torture and instead became one of its greatest proponents. He even voted against a bill he previously supported that would outlaw the use of waterboarding. I say this with complete sincerity, torture and torturers have no better friend than Senator John McCain. Vote for McCain in 2008 and we will torture our way to a better world of freedom and democracy."
