President Gives Foreign Cops Power Over Americans


www.newswithviews.com

An amendment to an executive order secretly signed by President Barack Obama on December 16, 2009 gives police officers from foreign governments police powers in the United States.

foreign cops operating in the US will not be forced to comply with the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. The government has already given the International Criminal Police Organization, or INTERPOL, most of privileges enjoyed by foreign diplomats in the US.

He also pointed out that INTERPOL member countries include Venezuela, Syria, Yemen, Bolivia, Cuba, Iran and Somalia -- all countries unfriendly to the U.S.

LOL
WOW



There are multiple reasons why this Obama decision is so deeply disturbing. First, the Obama order reverses a 1983 Reagan administration decision in order to grant Interpol, the International Criminal Police Organization, two key privileges. First, Obama has granted Interpol the ability to operate within the territorial limits of the United States without being subject to the same constitutional restraints that apply to all domestic law enforcement agencies such as the FBI. Second, Obama has exempted Interpol's domestic facilities -- including its office within the U.S. Department of Justice -- from search and seizure by U.S. authorities and from disclosure of archived documents in response to Freedom of Information Act requests filed by U.S. citizens. Think very carefully about what you just read: Obama has given an international law enforcement organization that is accountable to no other national authority the ability to operate as it pleases within our own borders, and he has freed it from the most basic measure of official transparency and accountability, the FOIA.

With the signing of an under-publicized amendment to Executive Order 12425, Barack Obama has fundamentally altered your constitutional rights. His actions are undermining your rights to protect personal privacy from a foreign internationalist police agency named Interpol.

Michael van Der Galien writes, "This foreign law enforcement organization can operate free of an important safeguard against government and abuse. Property and assets, including the organization's records, cannot now be searched or seized. Their physical operational locations are now immune from U.S. legal and investigative authorities."

Whoa!
Wow!

This is BIG news
How come it's barely making any news then?

Isn't this an attack on sovereignty?

Obama administration and Interpol officials say the fears and accusations are based on ignorance about how Interpol works and about the context and impact of the order

Contrary to its portrayal in some movies, Interpol has no police force that conducts investigations and makes arrests. Rather, it serves its 188 member countries by working as a clearinghouse for police departments in different nations to share law enforcement information — like files on wanted criminals and terrorists, stolen cars and passports, and notices that a law enforcement agency has issued an arrest warrant for a fugitive.

“We don’t send officers into the field to arrest people; we don’t have agents that go investigate crimes,” said Rachel Billington, an Interpol spokeswoman. “This is always done by the national police in the member country under their national laws.”

The examiner however disagrees with the NY Times


To say that it is disturbing and troublesome that the traditional, established media would ignore serious questions about the executive order and focus instead on conservative reaction would be an understatement. The function of a free press is to question everything in order to get to the truth

But today's traditional media, which I call the 'state-run media' due to its unprecedented allegiance to and cheerleading for the Obama Administration, barely questions anything this President does until such a furor is raised among bloggers that they are forced to deal with the issue. And even then, they deflect and divert attention to an insignificant part of the story--the ire of conservatives--in order to avoid dealing with the substantive questions that Obama's actions have evoked.

This is interesting
It's barely making any headlines
If it's so much of a non-issue why was it kind of a secretive signing?

I am going to say it ONE MORE TIME .. okay ?? ..

The INTERPOL has been operating freely in almost every 1st and 2nd world country (expect in the U.S, 'till now) for a long time .. not one case of them arresting a random citizen .. not one case of "POLICE-STATE" actions ..

The INTERPOL is here to catch INTERNATIONAL CRIMINALS .. Kidnappers, Mafia people, Organ Harvesters, ETC.. ETC..

If you have never been involve in any International Crime .. the INTERPOL will NOT knock in your door ..

It's a slap in the face of American citizens who may be abused by these non-citizen cops from countries that don't recognize our constitutional protections," warns former New York City detective and Marine intelligence officer Sidney Franes.


So what are you saying Polynomial?

Anyone can be considered a "suspect", but that doesn't matter to you?

Why would Obama do that!? Oh wait - it's because he is an IDIOT!!! Just another step toward a world government and away from American sovereignty. I'm tired of this asshat's agenda to destroy America! At least 2010 should see the Republipukes put the government back into gridlock. It seems to country does best when the politicians can't do anything!

Let me interpret what Poly means.

Hate to step on your toes Poly.

What he means to say if you are doing nothing wrong, do not worry.

The shredding of the Constitution means nothing.

The Foreign police with immunity giving you the strip search and rifling through all of your belongings is for your protection.

Drip, drip, drip...................................................Sarcasm

S&F OP every time this comes up!

Hmmm, why do you think that is? Could it be because they were not permitted to operate indiscriminently in the US and were subject to our laws until idiot asshat fascist boy stepped in and took that threat away! Honest to God... do you use your head before you post or do you just immediately defend Obama's stupid action regardless!? Just wondering cuz I've seen you do it over and over and over and over again.

ModernAcademia,

I look at this as good news.....

It has been over 8 years since the criminal bush/cheney cabal slaughtered over 3,000 innocent civilians in the false flag terror attack known as 9-11.

NOTHING has been done in the U.S. to apprehend the criminals...


Maybe INTERPOL will finally do the job...


(love the avatar btw)

PEACE and LOVE...

So would give me full authority to search your home anytime I want just because I don't have a history searching random people's homes?

do you even realize what you are saying?

You may be very right in what you are saying, the thing is... it doesn't matter!

Perhaps Interpol never ever searched random citizens like this, but.... have they ever had this power before???


I think you are quite naive.

It is the opening of a door to the possible arrest and prosecution of U.S. military and government officials on war crimes charges. Most of those were in the Bush administration.

But apparently, the Obama administration has failed to realize how this can be abused, and how in some ways ceded U.S. sovereignty.

Then again, maybe that is exactly what they want!

I wonder if this is something that is an impeachable offense.

Actually I know it is, but I wonder if anyone will bring it up?

If the International movement is attempting to institute a Global Governance, which would bring about the removal of Sovereign status of our country, does this not give aid to the enemy?

Therefore, is this not treason?

organized crime, crimes against humanity, genocide, war crimes, Piracy, major illicit drug production, major drug trafficking, weapons smuggling, human trafficking, money laundering, child pornography, white-collar crime, computer crime, intellectual property crime and corruption....

If none of these crimes fits you .. then the INTERPOL will not even look at your name ..

Unfortunately you are not allowed to ask that question.
Remember when the DHS said that returning vets, anti-abortionists and people who had concerns over illegal immigration were potential terroists?
It also included people who were concerned over the loss of U.S. sovereignty.

See how the chips all fall down?
