It looks like almost every law school is represented.  This is not something that can be blamed on the 'liberal media'.


Letter sent to the United States Congress regarding recent human rights issues in Iraq


June 16, 2004

To: Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.

As members of university faculties in law, international relations, diplomacy, and public policy, we write to register our objection to the systematic violation of human rights practiced or permitted by authorities of the United States within occupied Iraq during recent months: we request Congressional action to ensure accountability for such violations and to safeguard against such egregious abuses in the future. Current circumstances require that all transcend partisan politics or considerations. Action by Congress is necessary to promote a rule of law produced and enforced through a democratic process and to protect the physical and psychological integrity of all people consistent with the traditions of our nation.

That's awesome -- good for them.  I'm glad to see four professors from my school on the list!

If only these 500-plus law professors hadn't been brainwashed by the liberal media...

There, I did it!

With all the yammering about whether it is legal or what law applies, the law profs should speak up.

Or have you been brainwashed by the conservative media?

Or do I not convey sarcasm well in my posts?
