Obama Following In Bush's Footsteps In Some Key Areas - Suffers No Protests From The Left Who As He Is Their "Hope"

Obama OKs about 17,000 more troops for Afghanistan

Despite Obama pledge, Justice defends Bush secrets

WASHINGTON — Despite President Obama's promise of more open government, the Justice Department is resisting pressure to release documents the Bush administration kept secret about domestic wiretapping, data collection on travelers and U.S. citizens, and interrogation of suspected terrorists.

In half a dozen lawsuits, Justice lawyers are defending Bush administration decisions to withhold records from the public. They have opposed formal motions or spurned out-of-court offers to merely delay these cases until the new administration rewrites Freedom of Information Act guidelines and decides whether the new rules might allow the public to see more.

I betting that his loyal followers are unaware of this development. It's not like MSM is spending anytime on it. I wonder if he will hold a press conference to announce this deployment?
