Wow. I had no idea his balls were this big....
Obama Releases Bush Admin. Secrets
Good for him!
I'm shocked that a president has the power to do this.
Oh, but wait. We're fighting terrorism, so the President gets to be the The Decider, right?!
The legal memos written by the Bush administration's Office of Legal Counsel show a government grappling with how to wage war on terrorism in a fast-changing world. The conclusion, reiterated in page after page of documents, was that the president had broad authority to set aside constitutional rights.
Someday, someone will makes movie about how absolute power corrupts absolutely. And using the Bush administration as the storyline would be very appropriate. Being told that he is free from any constitutional limitations just because of a terrorist attack is scary stuff.
Oliver Stone, here's your sequel!
By the way, even though nobody is posting in the forums anymore, I might as well mention to no one in particular that the movie 'W.' was very good. Actually a very fair and balanced look at George W. that almost made me feel kind of sorry for the guy, but not quite. His stupid lust for power overshadowed how he felt about his own administration towards the end. And people like Cheney should just crawl under a rock somewhere. These were horrible men to have as leaders of our country.
