The University of St. Thomas Law School's integrity has been repeatedly questioned as to its hiring of Robert Delahunty to teach Constitutional and International Law. Delahunty co-authored the 2002 memos with John Yoo in George Bush's Department of Justice that stated that the U.S. did not need to comply with the Geneva Conventions which thus paved the way for the various atrocities that have been committed in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as the torture and abuse of detainees. Joshua Phillips' new book "We Were Never Like This Before" documents how the atrocities began when the troops were told they no longer had to abide by the Geneva Conventions. Delahunty and St. Thomas Law School officials insist Delahunty was and is right although the Supreme Court overturned large parts of the Delahunty-Yoo memo.

Amazing bad St Thomas intergity is. I would think many Catholics would be shamed to know this Catholic University supports a professor who trys to justify ignoring the Geneva Conventions. Not only have people in other countries suffered for it but so have our troops. HOw many troops have committed suicide because the guidelines were taken away? How many Veterans will suffer for the rest of their lives because of Delahunty and Yoo's memos?
