Obama Takes Bush Position On Habeas Corpus

Email Print

I previously noted how deluded were liberals who thought Obama would be better than Bush–see my posts Obama Defends Bush Wiretaps and Obama/Bush and the State Secrets Privilege. And now, he takes Bush’s position on habeas corpus in the case of detainees held at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. Kudos to the oft-inconsistent and economically illiterate Rachel Madow (no offense, most people I know) for criticizing Obama in the video below; see also Obama administration seeks to deny habeas-corpus for Afghan detainees; Obama abandons habeas corpus; and Obama Backs Bush On Bagram Detainees.
