Sleazing Its Way Out of History

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

An administration that sleazed into Washington seven long years ago committed to concealing the past is clearly determined to slip away by erasing as many traces as possible of its own record from potential historical scrutiny. Entirely, and obviously, in character. The worry is that, once Bush-Cheney etc. are finally gone too many people finally being roused into awareness of the deep erosion of civil liberties in the past several years might be naively lulled into complacency by the prospect of a Democratic administration. But, as Glenn Greenwald makes clear in this dissection of the Democratic Senate "leadership" and its pusillanimous
ways in dealing with the issue of  warrantless eavesdropping and related topics, civil liberties will be won back and protected in spite of rather than because of  the leaderships of either party.
