Obama goes for state secrets; loses a follower

Via Greenwald, here's Obama supporter Andrew Sullivan on the news Monday that the Obama Administration will continue the Bush Administration's position on the "state secrets" privilege:
The Obama administration will continue the cover-up of the alleged torture of the British resident. The argument is that revealing the extent of the man's torture and abuse would reveal state secrets. No shit. This is a depressing sign that the Obama administration will protect the Bush-Cheney torture regime from the light of day. And with each decision to cover for their predecessors, the Obamaites become retroactively complicit in them.
