Lindsey Graham: Bush Administration Saw Law As 'Nicety We Could Not Afford' (VIDEO)

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.
