In case you have not been paying attention
Here is a tidbit from today's news:
Among other policies, the Obama team has also placed a United States citizen on a targeted-killings list without a trial, blocked efforts by detainees in Afghanistan to bring habeas-corpus lawsuits challenging their indefinite imprisonment, and continued the C.I.A. rendition program – though the administration says it now takes greater safeguards to prevent detainees from being mistreated.
I wish to commend Kevin Drum in particular for continuing to draw our attention to these policies.
