lise.jpgTrue to form, for their new Laboratory for Integrated Science and Engineering (LISE) Harvard University has spared no expense. Award-winning Spanish architect Rafael Moneo was hired to design the building with, according to the Harvard Gazette's Steve Bradt, "an unusual pearlescent façade that changes subtly with the day's lighting... sculpted pedestals... and an underground section designed to receive natural light."

Torture Memo Judge Greeted by Protests at Harvard
bybee protesers.jpgCambridge, MA (9 March 2006) — Federal appellate judge Jay Bybee, who signed the infamous 2002 “torture memo,” was confronted by protesters at Harvard Law School today after speaking at a closed event.

In August 2002, Bybee, then a high-ranking Justice Department official, signed the now-infamous “torture memo” establishing a legal framework for interrogation policies in the “Global War on Terror.” The Bybee memo distorted international and U.S. law to give a green light for the kinds of torture and mistreatment documented in Abu Ghrayb, Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan, and elsewhere.
