Doesn't that actually endorse and extend to private actors the Nixonian view that if the president says it's legal, it's legal, regardless of what the law says and the Constitution says? Wouldn't that set an awful precedent that an administration could get private actors to do whatever they wanted including breaking the law?WOW.

And what exactly is the legal burden of proof that a person believed that the Imaginary Tooth Fairey brought to them the divine right to do the right thing.... And hence, because of course the Imaginary Tooth Fairey speaks for El Presidente, then they should be immune from the Brutal Assault of the Law Folks who HATE FREEDOM!!!
Thank GOD we have RoboBushCheney!
