How Did We Ever Think Greed Was Good?

The Mystique of "Free-Market Guy" Obama

By Jeff Cohen

If Obama is radical about anything, it's about not rocking corporate boats.

Now that the authority is law, how has the Department of Justice used the new power? To go after drug dealers.

Obama will bypass Congress to detain suspects indefinitely

Such a decision allows the president to unilaterally hold "combatants" without habeas corpus -- a legal term literally meaning "you shall have the body" -- which forces prosecutors to charge a suspect with a crime to justify the suspect's detention.
