Michael Mukasey seems to live partly on the dark side.
Department of Justice staff are apparently refusing to let the Obama transition team see the Bush era legal opinions that support National Security Agency (spying, probably on all of us) and CIA (torture and rendition) operations. According to Law.com, Attorney General Michael Mukasey is taking the position that the opinions from the DOJ Office of Legal Counsel are somehow the private property of the agencies that solicited them to cover their asses.
Sure seems like the spooks are used to calling the shots. Can the new boss rein them in -- or will they co-opt his people?
