How Karl Rove Sees The Rule Of Law

A spin, revealing the cynicism beneath - in a tweet:

Precautions taken 2 guarantee compliance w/ federal prohibition on torture. U might characterize diligence as overcautious.

What's interesting here is the subtext, which does indeed illustrate what was clearly the mindset of Bush and Cheney. They decided to torture, believed in it, and felt merely obliged to come up with a legal rationale to justify it. This tweet is actually useful evidence of the criminal mindset of these people.
