Info on Podcast #92

Jason Leopold on whitewash for Bybee/Yoo; Brad Friedman on O'Keefe/Breitbart scam to tamper with Sen. Landrieu's phones. Leopold is deputy managing editor at Truthout and has closely followed of the torture memos written by John Yoo and approved by Jay Bybee. The Obama Justice Dept. has watered down the findings of the Bush-era investigation that concluded that Yoo and Bybee had "violated professional standards" and referred them to Bar associations for possible discipline; the new report, according to Newsweek, says they merely "showed poor judgment". We refer to the cases of homicide that Scott Horton reports in our podcast 91 and suggest the Obama Justice Dept. is obstructing justice. Friedman, whose Bradblog is celebrating its 6th anniversary, has done an excellent job unraveling the tactics of O'Keefe--first in the ACORN hatchet job, and now with his Jan 25 arrest for trying to tamper with phones at Sen. Landrieu's office in New Orleans. You won't get this kind of context and detail from corporate media outlets.
