Under Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution, the president is commander-in-chief of the armed forces. … This power should allow the president to attack countries and terrorist groups to prevent them from harming the U.S., even if not with an imminent attack.

“I am not sure why a single judge—no matter what his position in the Judicial Conference—can speak on behalf of the entire judiciary on a matter of the constitutionality of a bill.”
John Yoo quoted in San Francisco Chronicle, August 11, 2014
“You have a president who basically has tried to reverse the major elements of the Bush policies, not just on terrorism, but on foreign policy. Under which administration is America’s situation better off?”

“I think it’s a rebuke to President Obama, but, at the same time, this decision plays the delicate task of trying to preserve presidential power for the next president. It still says that the president has this power to appoint lower executive branch officials during recess, but that President Obama stretched the power too far, even too far for all nine members of the Supreme Court.”

“Senator Paul is drunk on the publicity of pulling a stunt like speaking in Berkeley as a libertarian Republican. He’s getting a lot of praise for venturing into the lion’s den (as it were). . . . Paul was clever to raise the single issue on which his extreme libertarian views would find a sympathetic reception from a young crowd who were about anywhere from five to eight years old at the time of the 9/11 attacks and believe they have more to fear from the NSA wiretapping their smartphones (for what possible purpose?) than another terrorist attack.”

“It’s a natural outgrowth of the policies that the Attorney General and the Obama Administration are pursuing by trying to use the civilian domestic criminal justice system to try terrorists and pirates.”

-Berkeley Law professor Laurent Mayali, one of the center’s co-directors, said the prime minister’s involvement, along with the high number of Berkeley alumni in the Korean legal system, will allow for a two-way conversation between the two communities. “It’s really a joint enterprise,” he said.
-Yoo, the other co-director, said the former prime minister was already providing guidance during his first visit to the center, speaking at an internal conference the university held on territorial disputes between China, Japan and Korea. “Obviously, having somebody who’s in the room who’s been a part of the head of the government, giving the perspective of Korea, to understand the problem, the facts, and so on—for us it’s invaluable,” Yoo said.

John Yoo … said Pauley had followed the Supreme Court’s previous rulings about what sorts of information the Fourth Amendment protects. By contrast, “Judge Leon tried to escape” what the high court had previously ruled, Yoo said in an email. “It is up to the Supreme Court, not a trial judge, to decide whether to overrule” its previous case, he said. “The conflicting decisions,” he added, “seem guaranteed to send the issue to the Supreme Court for the last word” unless the D.C. Circuit overrules Leon’s decision.

“We are quite accustomed to companies and government being able to analyze and sort through all of that information without us thinking it has some kind of Fourth Amendment constitutional protection.”
