Perhaps Obama's Sudden Love of Executive Power... due to the fact that Office of Legal Counsel chief Dawn Johnsen isn't technically on the job yet?

Johnsen was supposed to be the voice of civil liberties and non-expansive executive power in this administration. Until she gets there, it's no surprise that the OLC hasn't changed things much - it's pretty much operating rudderless.

Senate: confirm her. Now.

You have no IDEA how many executive officials have not yet been confirmed. This is a problem with every new administration, but it gets worse every time.

And, yes, I'm betting that Johnsen's advice is sorely needed right now.
