Not only is the "decider" Bush--the Monarch of America, our Napoleon Bonaparte, the First Consul of the Straussian neocons--above the law, so are his court minions. "Lawyers for two lobbyists accused of conspiring to obtain secret defense information said Friday that they intended to prove that senior administration officials, including Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, provided the lobbyists with some of the sensitive information," reports the Los Angeles Times. "Ratcheting up their defense against espionage charges, the lawyers, representing former employees of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, got tentative clearance from U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III to subpoena Rice and three other officials in the case.... It was unclear whether Rice and the other officials would agree to be questioned or to testify," in other words they are above the law and subpoenas are little more than toilet paper.
