One Final Riff on Obama (Before He is Sworn In)

Finally, let me make one last, unfair criticism of Obama before he has the opportunity to act. It is gratifying to hear that he intends to shut down GTMO, try or release the detainees, and launch an investigation of indefinite detention, torture, and "extraordinary rendition." But there is one more Bush Administration policy he has been notably silent on, the only one he voted in favor of, but one that led to practices so illegal the entire top echelon of the Justice Department was ready to resign. I refer, of course, to warrantless surveillance. Does Obama intend to investigate that as well?
