Release of OLC Documents
Yesterday the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) released nine memos that deal with anti-terrorism policies following 9/11. The OLC was careful to say that these documents do not reflect current OLC policies. Professor Johnsen, presumably soon to be at the OCL, has said that she’s in favor of releasing post 9/11 memos that don’t interfere with national security. There are several articles on the release, the Washington Post and the Chicago Tribune to name just two. Or, if you’d like, you can go read the memos themselves at the OLC website.
