Following Bush lead, Obama moves to block challenge to wiretapping program

Wants case against NSA dismissed

President Barack Obama invoked "state secrets" to prevent a court from reviewing the legality of the National Security Agency's warantless wiretapping program, moving late Friday to have a lawsuit that challenged the program dismissed.

The move -- which holds that information surrounding the massive eavesdropping program should be kept from the public because of its sensitivity -- follows an earlier decision in March to block handover of documents relating to the Bush Administration's decision to spy on a charity. The arguments also mirror the Bush Administration's efforts to dismiss an earlier suit against AT&T.

I wonder will obermann talk about this,a nd all the stuff he rightly said about bush, will he also slate obama.

the thing is does obama have any real ower, to change things, doubtful.

He is just a man having ahis day in the sun, playing his role as an actor.

If Obama wanted to change this, he and his Democrat Congress could find a way. They have figured out how to squander away our great garndchildrens future, I'm sure the Bush wiretapping thing should not pose much of a challenge.

Why does anyone think he would WANT to reverse it? He is more controlling than W ever hoped to be.

Little Barry is just doing as he is told.

For those who thought that GW had the clinch on the nation, you haven't seen anything yet. Just look at was happened to our country in Barry's first five months. Blame him and blame congress. They will not be happy until the govt has complete control over all public and private matters in our once great nation.

like has been said before me... he is being a puppet, when all this sh** happens we always blame the puppet obviously because they are in the front of the curtain, but its behind the curtain we need to blame..

now i'm no obama supporter by any means, same as i never was a Bush supporter, i don't support any demopubs or republicrats... but we can't forget who really controls things and go after them
