Tortured Logic

So John Yoo, “Constitutional lawyer” is not sure what force of law a treaty carries. It’s very simple. A treaty signed by the President and ratified by Congress has the legal force of a statutory law. Federal statutes carry authority second only to the US Constitution. The third Geneva Convention was signed by the US on 12/8/49 and ratified on 2/8/55. Torture is illegal Mr. Yoo.
