VERIFY BEFORE YOU TRUST

Today's must-read from from Glenn Greenwald.

What really rubbed me the wrong way was how Obama in his statement says essentially trust me with these powers, I'll use them responsibly.

Nope.

"There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty." - John Adams [1772].

Who wrote this?

"'ll just add here at the end, that I'm terribly worried, almost alarmed, that the anti-Hillary contingent among the progressive blogosphere is showing evidence of a willingness to fracture the Democratic Party if their candidate, Obama, is not the party nominee, while seemingly all pro-Hillary adherents are making it clear that they will wholeheartedly support Obama if he is, in the end, our standard-bearer. Let me say now, as I remarked to The Sage a few minutes ago, that despite my wholehearted support of the Clinton campaign, I will comfortably and happily do everything I can to advance Barack Obama to the presidency if he ends up as our nominee."

I too, am terribly worried, and almost alarmed.

What's really changed other than you being forced to confront your own hypocrisy?
