ACLU: Obama Now Complicit in Bush Torture

Lawyers of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) who have fought in court for the release of the detainee abuse photos now say President Barack Obama is complicit in torture with the Bush administration.

The ACLU says it will continue to fight in court for the release of these photos….
.
Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, was brutal in blasting the decision to fight the release, saying Mr. Obama may “betray” both his campaign promises and his commitment to American principles.
.
“The Obama administration’s adoption of the stonewalling tactics and opaque policies of the Bush administration flies in the face of the president’s stated desire to restore the rule of law, to revive our moral standing in the world and to lead a transparent government,” he said.
