Obama doesn't need no stinkin' badges.

In Salon, Glenn Greenwald writes that "Obama's whistleblower war suffers two defeats". What this is all about is that the Obama administration, through its Justice Department, is using harassment and intimidation to deny due process and to non-legally punish alleged whistleblowers instead of pursuing honest prosecutions. This is very consistent with his defense of Bush Administration torturers, his flip-flop over granting retroactive immunity to telecommunications companies for their role in FISA violations, his Libyan bombings in disregard of the War Powers act and numerous other violations of his oath of office to faithfully execute the law.

So help me, it appears that his reputed Constitutional scholarship must have been entirely devoted to figuring out ways to defy the Constitution and undermine the rule of law.
