WELL, HE DID PROMISE “CHANGE:” Obama’s Reversals On Executive Power. “The majority of Democrats, polls suggest, have followed roughly the same path as the former Yale Law School dean Harold Koh, a staunch critic of Bush’s wartime policies who now serves as a legal adviser to the State Department, supplying constitutional justifications for Obama’s drone campaigns. What was outrageous under a Republican has become executive branch business-as-usual under a Democrat.”
It’s as if all that international law / human rights moralizing was just cover for partisan hackery or something.
