In other news, I don't want it lost that the Obama administration has not just endorsed the Bush administration's secrecy and wiretapping programme, but has now moved beyond it, making claims in court even Chief Executive Bush's lawyers declined to make. Functionally, they are working to stop any action against administration acts on the basis that they can declare all documents related to these acts secret and withhold any and all evidence from court consideration, even if the documents are already public. See also here, and much more, here, for Chief Executive Obama's embrace-and-extend approach to Mr. Bush's executive immunity claims.
