Did Cheney Break the Law?

I accept Sheldon Whitehouse's argument that there is no need to criminalise the CIA because they ignored the law, but an investigation is needed to make sure that they follow the law in future.

This is exactly the same reason why I think Bush and Cheney must be investigated for participating in torture. I have no desire to see either man behind bars, but I think it is vital that it is recorded that their arguments are wrong. For, if it is not, then future Republican presidents will hold up the fact that they were not prosecuted as "proof" that they did no wrong.
