Obama Defends Bush Wiretaps

Liberals who thought Obama would be better than Bush are idiots. I noted in Obama/Bush and the State Secrets Privilege the Obama administration’s siding with Bush’s on the State Secrets Privilege. And now, as reported here, “The Obama administration is again invoking government secrecy in defending the Bush administration’s wiretapping program, this time against a lawsuit by AT&T customers who claim federal agents illegally intercepted their phone calls and gained access to their records.”

Congrats, demonrats!

Update: Reader Jason Gordon writes: “In addition to the AT&T case you posted from the SF Chronicle is this one from Monday regarding the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s case against the NSA. True to form Obama deploys the fraudulent state secrets privilege.”
