We wanted to share this scorecard from the ACLU of Massachusetts on President Obama's decisions so far on civil liberties, during his first 100 days:
The tally we've come up with so far is -1.5
The problem is not that the Obama administration has not immediately repaired all the damage done to civil liberties in recent years -- that would be a tall order.
Instead, we are looking at the decisions the administration is making that could help to restore the rule of law, and evaluated whether or not that decision was a step in the wrong direction or a step in the right direction.
