Nothing cruel or unusual here

Regarding a memo written by former Defense Department chief counsel William J. Haynes II, the Balkin blog says: "The DoD General Counsel (who's recently been renominated for a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit) concluded that threats of killing a detainee's family members, and waterboarding, and forced nudity, and the use of dogs to induce stress, etc., not only did not violate the UCMJ, but are 'humane!"
