ACLU chief 'disgusted' with Obama - Josh Gerstein - POLITICO.com

Asked why he's so animated now, Romero said: "It’s 18 months and, if not now, when? ... Guantanamo is still not closed. Military commissions are still a mess. The administration still uses state secrets to shield themselves from litigation. There's no prosecution for criminal acts of the Bush administration. Surveillance powers put in place under the Patriot Act have been renewed. If there has been change in the civil liberties context, I frankly don't see it."
I pretty much agree with him, except for prosecution for criminal acts by the Bush administration, as I fail to see any evidence this has been done.

Kudos for the ACLU chief for saying this.

As a sidenote, some mental midget in the comments section claims this is "blatant racism" on Romero's part....when will this idiocy end?
