Obama releases secret Bush anti-terror memos


news.yahoo.com

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration threw open the curtain on years of Bush-era secrets Monday, revealing anti-terror memos that claimed exceptional search-and-seizure powers and divulging that the CIA destroyed nearly 100 videotapes of interrogations and other treatment of terror suspects.

The Justice Department released nine legal opinions showing that, following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the Bush administration determined that certain constitutional rights would not apply during the coming fight. Within two weeks, government lawyers were already discussing ways to wiretap U.S. conversations without warrants.

The Bush administration eventually abandoned many of the legal conclusions, but the documents themselves had been closely held. By releasing them, President Barack Obama continued a house-cleaning of the previous administration's most contentious policies.

I hate Obama but this is one move I am actually happy about hopefully he will release the whole president book of secrets but I highly doubt that. Thoughts about this?? More to come?? Maybe some proof about 9/11 being a set up?? Not sure how much this had to do with him choosing to close Guantanomo Bay but perhaps it did play a certain role.
