Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall: “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.’

So the right to set aside law is ‘inherent in the president’. That claim alone should stop everyone in their tracks and prompt a serious consideration of the safety of the American republic under this president.”
