The Legality of Evil: The Torture Memos and the Living Constitution by Jack Balkin (which contains my favorite response so far: "Yoo's torture memo sounds very lawyerly in its arguments. This observation points to an important fact about legal discourse: Lawyers can make really bad legal arguments that argue for very unjust things in perfectly legal sounding language.")

What To Do About You by Christopher Hayes
Take an 81-page opinion dealing with the degree to which the President's power is bound (or not) by existing laws during war time
- Open both parts of that opinion in your PDF reader (Part One, Part Two)
- Using the search function on your PDF reader, search for the word "Youngstown"
- Guess how many citations to Youngstown you find--go on, guess!
And in case you were worried that Yoo simply doesn't know about Youngstown, see this link, that demonstrates that Professor Yoo believes it is the first text to consider in any discussion of separation of powers.

Outrage at the Latest OLC Torture Memo by Dawn Johnson
For at least 16 months after the Sept. 11 terror attacks in 2001, the Bush administration believed that the Constitution's protection against unreasonable searches and seizures on U.S. soil didn't apply to its efforts to protect against terrorism.
That view was expressed in a secret Justice Department legal memo dated Oct. 23, 2001. The administration on Wednesday stressed that it now disavows that view.
The October 2001 memo was written at the request of the White House by John Yoo, then the deputy assistant attorney general, and addressed to Alberto Gonzales, the White House counsel at the time. The administration asked the department for an opinion on the legality of potential responses to terrorist activity.
The 37-page memo is classified and has not been released. Its existence was disclosed Tuesday in a footnote of a seperate secret memo, dated March 14, 2003, released by the Pentagon in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union.
