Or as former Bush attorney and current UC Berkeley law Professor John Yoo noted, "The president can and should put into place political appointees who agree with him. The Obama administration has placed detainee lawyers in important positions in the government because, clearly, the president agrees with the ACLU perspective on the war on terrorism."
And there's something too easy about going after the assistant and undersecretaries for policies endorsed at the very top.
Doesn't Obama have the right to pick his own people? I asked Burlingame. She answered, "He has a right to do it, but does he have a right to do it in the dark?"
The answer is no. But don't take potshots in the dark either.
