Posted: Updated:

The Hill flags this interesting line from Senator Lindsey Graham about the way the Bush administration viewed the rule of law. During a hearing on the interrogation of detainees, Graham said that the Bush administration did not commit any crimes, but that they "saw the law as a nicety we could not afford."

Graham also questioned the validity of the hearing itself, speculating that it was a political stunt.
