Barack Obama and secrecy

Barack Obama continues to embrace, in a menacing way, secrecy. He has reversed himself on releasing detainee abuse photos. A lawsuit may yet reverse Obama’s poor judgement, but this is certainly a dark chapter for the new administration. Would it be too far to suggest that Obama is starting to sound like a Republican? Consider this— “[Obama] did not take questions from reporters, but said disclosing the photos would have “a chilling effect” on future attempts to investigate detainee abuse.”
