Rights, schmights
From the man whose election was supposed to be a milestone for civil rights
The Obama administration is asking the Supreme Court to overrule a 23-year-old decision that stopped police from initiating questions unless a defendant's lawyer is present. another stark example of the White House seeking to limit rather than expand rights.

Since taking office, Obama has drawn criticism for backing the continued imprisonment of enemy combatants in Afghanistan without trial, invoking the “state secrets” privilege to avoid releasing information in lawsuits and limiting the rights of prisoners to test genetic evidence used to convict them.
I can only conclude the human-rights mask is off and, as in the old Communist bloc, the left really believe in these things.
