Shocking memo regarding the Emperor's and Lord Vader's treatment of Rebel combatants.

The Emperor enjoys complete discretion over the conduct of war, and so no law can infringe on his ultimate authority. We presume that none seek to provoke a confrontation with the Emperor over the scope of this authority. Therefore, the law must be construed in such a way as to avoid any such conflict, by determining a reasonable alternative interpretation consistent with the Emperor’s sole authority in wartime. The Emperor therefore has the authority to adopt the recommendations contained herein, and any others he deems appropriate.

On second thought, maybe this isn't that funny...
