Former New York Times columnist Anthony Lewis observed in the New York Review of Books article, ‘Making Torture Legal,’ on July 15, 2004: “The Bush legal team…spent an extraordinary amount of effort figuring out how to steer top administration officials around criminal conduct. Their ‘memos,’ Lewis wrote, ‘read like the advice of a mob lawyer to a Mafia don on how to skirt the law and stay out of prison. Avoiding prosecution is literally a theme of the memoranda.’ ”
