  • 2013-05-28 Obama's Pretty Words "If he had actually given a damn about the rule of law, he would have prosecuted Bush administration officials that authorized torture. Doing so is required by the UN Convention Against Torture, which is the law of the land in this country. If he gave a damn about the rule of law, he would have stopped using the broad version of the State Secrets Privilege in every single legal challenge to the executive branch. He hasn't just failed to support the rule of law, he has intentionally and flagrantly destroyed any possibility of its application."
  • 2013-08-23 The Manning Verdict and the Rule of Law "...the executive branch under both Bush and Obama has become, for all practical purposes, lawless. It has succeeded in subverting the Bill of Rights, the rule of law, the separation of powers, our treaty obligations and the rights of all of us. More importantly, it has succeeded in making itself immune to all legal challenge. We may exchange presidents every few years, but the branch they lead is now, for all practical purposes, an institution without boundaries on what it may do to us."
