You can't really right the Bush wrongs without prosecuting the people that did them. Sure he can stop torturing people, but if we have this agreement that torturing people is not something to be prosecuted, whether we torture people or not is simply a preference of the sitting president with no legal consequences. You can repeat this ad nauseum with all the crimes of that era. Presidents will see them as options because they know they won't have to answer to a jury later.

I mean, it's not like we somehow lacked precedent for saying all of the grotesque abuses of the time were illegal.

I'm going to go on a threadjack here, but here it comes : I remember seeing on TBS a movie, or a TV movie, about two former American presidents, a democrat and a republican, forced to go on the lam completely incognito. Does anybody knows the name ?

I remember just a scene :
The two former presidents are hungry, and they go to a fast food restaurant. The democrat does not have any money, so although the meal costs 5 bucks, he asks his colleague if he can borrow 10 bucks. The republican answers :
"The meal is 5 bucks, and you want to borrow 10 ? What is wrong with you democrats ?"

Or something of the sort.

He's fully embraced using JSOC for targeted kill missions to avoid congressional oversight. He's expanded the notion of the "whole world is a battlefield" to use drone strikes kidnappings and assassinations pretty much anywhere, including in allied countries. There are black sites all over the world doing god knows what to people who are picked up by US agents and turned over to foreign agents to avoid US law against torture. And of course he's taken on the right to act as judge jury and executioner against US citizens he deems a terrorist threat. He has personally intervened -- not his administration, him -- to ensure foreign journalists who say things we don't like are kept in prison on trumped up kangaroo court charges.

I could go on, but you get the point. He's saying the right thing, but his actions don't square with his words. He may have had a come to jesus moment, but I doubt it.

By "He's expanded it", do you happen to mean "Republicans and Democrats in both houses expanded it"?

There are many things on which Obama has been worse than Bush, and you can't find a harsher critic of Bush than I am (I think he should be rotting in a prison).  But there is a fundamental distinction between Obama and Bush.  Bush gloried in all of it, dressed up in his Halloween costume and strutted across the deck of an aircraft carrier, made "jokes" about finding WMDs.  Clueless.  Fully confident in the "rightness" of whatever he thought was right.  Like Nixon, he believed that if "the decider" decided something, it was both legal and good.

Obama has been savage with whistleblowers and has only increased the secretiveness of the White House.  I don't think there is any arguing that.  I'm not ready to forgive him those things.  But I think a lot of the crap he inherited goes against his grain.  I think he genuinely wanted to shut down Gitmo, but it would have required him to spend all of his political capital on that one issue, and even then probably would have failed.  I think Obama is against extralegal prisons and torture.  Bush and Cheney loved them, smirked about them, wrapped themselves in the flag to justify them.

Having said all that, I think the chances that this law will be even slightly watered down are zero.  The GOP will wave the "Republique en Danger" flag and it will work, and Obama will back off.  There are still too many people who believe, "Well, all of those people want to kill all of us, so what can we do."

I don't think the NDAA is what you think it is (or that it does what you think it does, but let's leave that aside for now). It's the name given to military appropriations bills that are passed with veto-proof (indeed, near-unanimous) majorities, so it's not exactly what would have been accomplished if he "hadn't signed" it, except for a brief bit of embarrassment.

As for the War Powers Act, the Obama administration's interpretation is in line with how it's been interpreted since Ford (or since Carter at the very latest).

I agree, we'll see.  I don't claim to know.  Lameduck presidents don't have much juice left, even with their own parties.  And they're looking down the road to "presidential libraries", which is code for, "you can *realllly* cash in and make some serious bucks", not to mention the speaking circuit, book deals, etc.  But if you want those things to be really lucrative, you have to continue to play ball with your party.

It's conceivable for a president to say, fark this, I'm going to start pushing what's really important to me in his last two years of office.  I don't think any president has ever done it.  But it's conceivable.

Ha! I think he intended to originally while running, but once he was in the big chair he suddenly noticed the "nuances" of these national security issues, and suddenly the "24 effect" crept into his decision making as he got to see how much of a massive fustercluck he had on his hands (partially as a result of the legal black hole the Bush administration caused, partially because of the haze of war). Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown; for all the discomfort Obama had with the semantic games Bush played with "enemy combatants", his administration didn't so much as blush when arguing that using drones instead of military planes with pilots affords the president more flexibility in what countries they can maintain a prolonged conflict with without needing Congressional approval. It's easy when you're in the executive chair to argue that corners can be cut and exceptions can be made for the sake of national security because you know you can trust yourself to not abuse the power, right?

Obama actually previously asked staff to come up with new guidelines to safeguard against abuse of the tools available in the War on Terror. It was early 2012, and ultimately they didn't produce anything (which, had Romney won, I have a feeling would not have been the case.) I'm glad that Obama may finally be addressing these problems, but the idea he was dragged kicking and screaming into taking advantage of legal gray areas in the name of fighting terrorism.

To be clear: he was always nuanced in how he didn't necessarily disagree with the abilities the President was given post-9/11, but he focused a hell of a lot more on the principles of having established rules and checks on that power codified and in black and white before he took office and the flexibility a lack of oversight created suddenly seemed more valuable.

But he's actually not weak on terror or defense, he understands that we need to change the military to a more strike force type thing than an occupational "take on 2 major world powers at once" force.

Are there things that he's done that are inexcusable? Sure. I think he has been continuing a tradition of White Houses shutting down as much damaging info from leaking to the press. But I don't think it's the worse under him nor do I think only him and GW were the ones that did it. I think the WH has had an uneasy presence with the press and going back to the JFK. That said, Congress and the GOP have done a great deal to force him into this corner and I think that's the worst part. If he had more say in what could be done on his watch, I think many of the things GWB and Congressional GOP put in place post-9/11 would be repealed, but with the president having such limited power there's only so much he can get done before the GOP starts calling for his impeachment

padraig: I'm going to go on a threadjack here, but here it comes : I remember seeing on TBS a movie, or a TV movie, about two former American presidents, a democrat and a republican, forced to go on the lam completely incognito. Does anybody knows the name ?

I remember just a scene :
The two former presidents are hungry, and they go to a fast food restaurant. The democrat does not have any money, so although the meal costs 5 bucks, he asks his colleague if he can borrow 10 bucks. The republican answers :
"The meal is 5 bucks, and you want to borrow 10 ? What is wrong with you democrats ?"

Or something of the sort.


My Fellow Americans with James Garner and Jack Lemmon as the two former presidents and Dan Aykroyd as the current president. Funny movie. And somewhat poignant.
