John Yoo, former deputy assistant attorney general in the George W. Bush administration, talked about the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report on Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) interrogations. John Yoo was the author of several 2002 Justice Department memos on interrogation of suspected terrorism detainees. The memos were viewed as providing legal rationale for setting aside the Geneva Convention and using enhanced interrogation techniques in questioning terrorism suspects. He talked about what he thought about in 2002 while trying to determine a definition of torture and what was legal while interrogating terrorism suspects. Professor Yoo participated by remote video from the University of California, Berkeley. After the interview, the reporters in the studio discussed his responses with the host. close
