Just poor judgment?

Written by Rosa Colucci on .

I was disappointed to see that Bush Justice Department lawyers Jay Bybee and John Yoo, the authors of the "torture memos," will get off with no punishment ("Bush-era Lawyers Cleared," Feb. 20). The departmental investigation cites them for bad judgment and nothing more.

Tiger Woods is guilty of bad judgment. The opinions of these lawyers resulted in actions that the United States once considered torture and may have resulted in the deaths of some prisoners.

This smells like whitewash. Tiger Woods' infidelities hurt just a few people and he had to make a public apology, but Bybee and Yoo will not even receive a wrist slap. Where is the justice?
