“Legal Fictions” Lithwick On the Flimsiest Bush Admin. Assertions of 2007

In Slate this week, Dahlia Lithwick covers “The Bush Administration’s Dumbest Legal Arguments of the Year.” The way things have been piling up, 365 days is more than enough time to forget a few whoppers. She covers  Gonzales, Libby, executive privilege, waterboarding, and a few that may have slipped your mind by now…

It’s also worth while to take a peek at her 2006 retrospective “The Bill of Wrongs: The 10 moHuffington3st outrageous civil liberties violations of 2006.” Wiretapping, anyone?

Other handy reminders are available via the Huffington Post:
