Indian execution law used to justify Bush torture policy

'His primary argument, in which he reaches back to 19th-century legal opinions justifying the execution of Indians who rejected the reservation, is that the laws didn't apply to Mr. Bush because he is commander in chief" writes the NY Times in an editorial concerning John Yoo's memo explaining how high US officials could escape culpability for torture. 

John Yoo still teaches law at the University of California at Berkeley.  And Bush still occupies the White House.
