Oh course I have to precede this with my deepest and most heartfelt apologies to Ranchand. It's one of those "evil" cut-and-paste postit's intended to foster debate

Looks like the Obama administration has decided to be less secretive about the Bush administration's doings than the Bush administrations was about the Bush administration's doings…
The Justice Department released nine legal opinions showing that, following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the Bush administration determined that certain constitutional rights would not apply during the coming fight. Within two weeks, government lawyers were already discussing ways to wiretap U.S. conversations without warrants…I can't believe it! I never ever would have suspected anything like this. Not from the Bush administration!
The Obama administration also acknowledged in court documents Monday that the CIA destroyed 92 videos of involving terror suspects, including interrogations — far more than had been known… The new administration pledged on Monday to begin turning over documents related to the videos to a federal judge and to make as much information public as possible.
I feel so used.
