Here’s why:

He suggested that both the administration’s program of eavesdropping without warrants and its use of “enhanced” interrogation techniques for terrorism suspects, including waterboarding, might be acceptable under the Constitution even if they went beyond what the law technically allowed.

That’s right.  The nominee for the highest law enforcement position in the country opined that the President may indeed be above the law.

What is this?  The Twilight Zone?
