Obama and State Secrets? Shhh…

Obama's Justice Department is following up on suits against the Bush administration's most egregious cases of violating habeas corpus taking the same position as the Bush administration.

Columbia Journalism Review writes about how the press is just barely covering it. Obama and State Secrets? Shhh… "Obama, like Bush, decides to limit what the courts and the people can know about warrantless wiretapping. Isn’t that a big story? Not just yet."

Glenn Greenwald today wrote on the topic, Obama and habeas corpus -- then and now.

I think this all started with this piece last week by Greenwald, New and worse secrecy and immunity claims from the Obama DOJ.
