Washington, UNITED STATES: John Yoo, professor of law at University of California at Berkeley School of Law, gestures while speaking on the Bush presidency and the constitutional powers of war 22 February 2006 at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, DC. Yoo served as Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Office of Legal Counsel in the US Justice Department from 2001-2003, where he was involved in many of the legal issues concerning the war on terrorism.

Law students at the University of California, Berkeley were given a special treat Tuesday by a prankster -- soft, fluffy rolls of fresh toilet paper in the bathrooms.

But it was toilet paper with a message, with sections of the text of the Convention Against Torture printed on it and the encomium "This Toilet Paper Made Possible by John Yoo."

Yoo is the controversial Cal law professor who famously helped the Bush Administration craft legal opinions that allowed "enhanced interrogation techniques" of suspected terrorists.

The techniques, including water boarding, have been criticized as amounting to torture.

It's not the first time that Yoo has come under fire on campus, as his courses have been interrupted by protestors to the point where the school no longer publishes the locations of his classes.

Jackson West wonders if Boalt will now switch to bidets.
