Not my words; they come from ABC News Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper:
In February, President Obama’s Justice Department quietly argued in a San Francisco court that it was maintaining the same position as President Bush’s Justice Department on a case involving detainees trying to sue a private company for its role in their (allegedly) extraordinary renditions.
The Obama administration pushed the status quo administration argument by invoking the “state secrets” argument, also a Bush-era fave.
That seems a little different from the Obama-Biden campaign website where “The Problem” is described in part as the Bush administration having “invoked a legal tool known as the ‘state secrets’ privilege more than any other previous administration to get cases thrown out of civil court.”
Because that’s just what the Obama administration tried to do.
More proof that the Obama administration is what the president warned a McCain administration would be: a third term for George W. Bush.
