"Staying True to Our Values at Home...Advancing our interests may involve new actions and policies to confront threats like terrorism, but the President and the Democratic Party believe these practices must always be in line with our Constitution, preserve our people’s privacy and civil liberties, and withstand the checks and balances that have served us so well. That is why the President banned torture without exception in his first week in office. That is why we are reforming military commissions to bring them in line with the rule of law. That is why we are substantially reducing the population at Guantánamo Bay without adding to it. And we remain committed to working with all branches of government to close the prison altogether because it is inconsistent with our national security interests and our values."
The NDAA, Trapwire, ACTA, the attempt to pass SOPA, the massive NSA data storage warehouse being built, and whatever else we do not know about clearly demonstrate that the president and the Democratic Party have no interest in our privacy or civil liberties or "the checks and balances that have served us so well." Extraordinary rendition (outsourcing of torture) still continues. They are reforming military commissions to bring them in line with what they think the rule of law is (NDAA). Gitmo is still open and less people are added to it because drone strikes have increased killing "terrorists" instead of detaining them.
In other words...all lies.
