Dozens of Secret Bush Surveillance, Executive Power Memos Found; Could Be Made Public



Link



Details about more than three dozen secret memoranda written by Bush Administration officials now sit atop a chart created by public interest reporting group. The memos track new details about dozens of secret Bush Administration legal positions on torture, detention and warrantless wiretapping.

Meanwhile, Obama's freshly-confirmed Attorney General Eric Holder told senators that he was open to declassifying White House legal memos if no support for their original classification could be found, signaling a likely showdown with former President George W. Bush over executive privilege.

If this is true then there could be some interesting issues arise from this.

There is a chart with main headings of the memos you can read this part and a brief and who sent to.

The Missing Memos
by Dan Nguyen and Christopher Weaver, ProPublica - January 28, 2009 7:00 am EST

The Bush administration’s controversial policies on detentions, interrogations and warrantless wiretapping were underpinned by legal memoranda. While some of those memos have been released (primarily as a result of ACLU lawsuits), the former administration kept far more memos secret than has been previously understood. At least three dozen by our count.

The decision to release them now lies with President Obama. To help inform the debate—and inject an extra dose of accountability—we’re posting the first comprehensive list of the secret memos.

ok, let's go peoples. While I did not flag my own thread for my own reasons, 4 of you flagged it. So it's fair that he should get them. My comments on this remain posted there, should any of you want to reply copy and paste here. Otherwise, this is still an important topic, worthy of discussion.
Good find OP, and you beat us all to the punch!

I somehow doubt these will come out and if they do, Bush will get a verbal slap on the hand. Anyone care to bet against me?

It is hard to say what will happen. If the new administration is all about accountability then......well...need I say more. On the contrary politics is still politics and will always be corrupt.

Yes and if you believe anyone in the new administration is not bought and paid for then I digress from further discussion with you on this.
