One thought on “FREE SPEECH ZONE | St. Thomas Law Professor Robert Delahunty’s “Torture Memos”

  1. I am reading this very late and responding very late – six or so years late. Professor Delahunty is an honorable man. I have worked with him at St. Thomas School of Law — noble and kind, he is benevolent to students and brilliant in front of his classes. His argument is sound: terrorists have no country: The Geneva Convention doesn’t apply to country-less terrorists. I’m not advocating torture, but Professor Delahunty did not advise the President contrary to law. I have thought a lot about war. Do we have the right to be aggressors when there is no instigating act such as 9-11? If we are fighting a borderless group, then 9-11 was the instigating act for many responses forward to a web of terrorists. A new convention should be formed to address a new enemy without state.
