So much for rehab

His law clerks toadies have tried their best to rehabilitate Jay Barbee as a nice guy who just went all Albert Speer, but he just won't be rehabilitated so easily:

Judge [Jay] Bybee...said in a statement in response to questions from The New York Times that he continued to believe that the memorandums represented "a good-faith analysis of the law" that properly defined the thin line between harsh treatment and torture.

...he said he would have done some things differently, like clarifying and sharpening the analysis of some of his answers to help the public better understand the basis for his conclusions.

If he just got another crack at that blue-book essay final, he'd be able to polish that turd up to at least a B-.
