Obama Has a Burning, Almost Carnal Desire to be Worse than Bush

‘During the presidential campaign, Obama criticized Bush for being too quick to invoke the state secrets claim. But last Friday, his Justice Department filed a motion in a warrantless wiretapping lawsuit, brought by the digital-rights group EFF. And the Obama-ites took a page out of the Bush DOJ’s playbook by demanding that the suit, Jewel v. NSA, be dismissed entirely under the state secrets privilege, arguing that allowing it go forward would jeopardize national security.’ This is ‘Coming on the heels of the two other recent cases in which the new administration has asserted the state secrets privilege’
