Marjorie Cohn of the National Lawyer's Guild speaks about the use of rendition under the Obama administration.

Cohn, professor at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law, says that instead of leaving the door open for the CIA to continue to engage in the rendition of terrorism suspects to other countries so long as the process is somehow handled "humanely", the Obama administration should end renditions altogether and prosecute those who have ordered renditions since 2001.

What gives?

 Huh. Apparently, during the Bush administration's waning days, Cheney lobbied ferociously for a pardon of Scooter Libby. And Dubya wouldn't budge.

 

In the waning days of the Bush administration, Vice President Dick Cheney launched a last-ditch campaign to persuade his boss to pardon Lewis (Scooter) Libby - and was furious when President George W. Bush wouldn't budge.

Sources close to Cheney told the Daily News the former vice president repeatedly pressed Bush to pardon Libby, arguing his ex-chief of staff and longtime alter ego deserved a full exoneration - even though Bush had already kept Libby out of jail by commuting his 30-month prison sentence.

"He tried to make it happen right up until the very end," one Cheney associate said.

Again, huh. I wonder what's up there? Come to think of it, I didn't hear anything at all about Bush pardons. Anybody know what's going on?
