Federal prosecutor John "Durham appears unlikely to secure criminal indictments against Rodriguez and other agency operations personnel involved in the conduct," three sources told the Post. "In recent months, the prosecutor has focused special attention on CIA legal advisers who reviewed court directives and on agency lawyers who told Rodriguez that getting rid of the recordings was sloppy and unwise but that it did not amount to a clear violation of the law, the sources said.
In the Bush administration then it would appear that so long as you could get an attorney to tell you it was okay, you're in the clear. This is only further evidence that attorneys working for the government apparently believe that their job is to give legal cover to what their bosses already want to do. In fact, a fair comparision can be made between government attorneys and attorneys working for another large, criminal organization.
