US President: final arbiter on torture

The significance of this little exchange seems to flown right out the window during the White House presser yesterday, the day before the "detainee" bill would be signed into law. Indeed, it happened so quickly and lightly, almost no one seems to have notice just what Tony Snow admitted to Helen Thomas:
Helen, you've had your hand up, sorry.

Q I wanted to talk about the bill the President will sign tomorrow.

MR. SNOW: Yes.

Q It makes him a final arbiter on torture.

MR. SNOW: Right.

Well, what do you think that "I am the decider" means?
