Obama's support for the new Graham-Lieberman secrecy law

• by Glenn Greenwald (Salon)
Obviously anticipating the Government is likely to lose in court again, Obama wants Congress to change FOIA by retroactively narrowing its disclosure requirements, prevent a legal ruling by the courts, and vest himself with brand new secrecy powers

Funny how the criminals seem to need to make their plundering and looting look "legal." Ayn Rand once explained this, but I can't recall what the explanation was.
If a bunch of crooks (Congress) get together and write an unjust law and all sign it, does anybody in his right mind think it's now become "the law of the land." ?

As in the example above.

Ok, I'm all confused here:

What again is the difference between getting Congress to change FOIA by retroactively narrowing its disclosure requirements to prevent a legal ruling by the courts and having the DOJ write memos to justify torture that had been happening for years and to make legal the confessions & resulting actions therein obtained as a result of said torture, all prior to date of the memo?

Somebody enlighten me, please!
