40. Key item is buried in the story
Talkingpointsmemo.com points out a key excerpt from the memo that is buried in the story and is THE most disturbing thing yet:

"To protect subordinates should they be charged with torture, the memo advised that Mr. Bush issue a "presidential directive or other writing" that could serve as evidence, since authority to set aside the laws is "inherent in the president." "

-- Authority to set aside laws is "inherent in the president" WTF????

"If the President does it, that means it is not illegal" -- Richard M. Nixon
