True, we haven’t yet hit 100 days. But we’re coming close to the halfway mark, and so far the Obama team seems to have a penchant for keeping all of Bush’s dirtiest secrets. Dahlia Lithwick gives us a rundown of the arguments offered for the current adherence to secrecy, revealing them in their almost humorous stupidity. The inside-the-Beltway assumption has been that there is no popular stomach for accountability. But Dahlia nails that:
Polls increasingly show that—despite the tanking economy—close to two-thirds of the public want investigations into the Bush team’s use of coercive interrogation and warrantless wiretapping. My guess is that those numbers will only go up, as America digests the OLC’s newly released constitutional quilting projects.
