|Obama Denies Habeas Corpus|
The New York Times has some background on the issue. And for the nerds in the audience who prefer their policy analysis from sources other than thirty-second comedy show clips, here’s an excellent piece by Glenn Greenwald at Salon, comparing Senator Obama’s unflinching defense of habeas corpus as American law’s moral compass, with President Obama’s Bush-style efforts to deny it to those to whom he campaign-promised to restore it. Troubling subject matter aside, I find it really refreshing to see a criticism of the new administration that contains no references to socialism or birth certificates or teabagging.
