Attention All Criminal Defendents, Here is a New Defense That Could Soon Be Viable in a Court Near You

In Crime, human rights, legal issues/law/courts, stupidity, war on terror on May 14, 2009 by Editor Z

At Torture hearings yesterday Sen. Lindsay Graham (R SC) who amazingly is a former JAG Prosecutor.

The Hill (H/T: Americablog)

The Bush administration did not commit any crimes, Graham said, but “they saw the law as a nicety we could not afford.”

How can someone so willing to excuse the blatant disregard of the law be elected to even hold a law degree and practice law, much less be elected to the U.S Senate where he is charged with crafting laws and conducting oversight to make sure they are enforced? Any criminal who would ever use such an excuse in court would be laughed out of the courtroom.
