    How is what they did "illegal" if it's never challenged legally?  I don't think they could have done what they did without an understanding of what the law is supposed to be irrespective of how they bastardized it.  If they didn't understand the legal issues, they wouldn't have felt the need to create their own "legality" around what they were doing.

      This reminds me of Star Wars Episode 1 (geek alert - coming out in 3D this weekend, I can't wait!) when Darth Sidious tells the Trade Federation guys to begin the invasion of Naboo.  One of them asks "is that legal?"  To which Darth Sidious replies "I will make it legal!"  I can kind of imagine a similar conversation between Dubya and Darth Cheney regarding torture...
