Some of you people are straight up idiots. do you think obama could have gotten where he is with a fake birth certificate. com'on, it's not even logical. especially with all the freakin press about it. everybody was searching to uncover this and came up with nothing. why should he even waste his time and your tax dollars going there. The judge is obviously a good ol' boy and in the pocket of some other biggots that hate obama. Middle finger to the haters for the wrong reasons

He started America in Libya, yeah he did.
And uh... under the War Powers Resolution he's required to notify Congress within 48 hours of committing armed forces to military action and forbids armed forces from remaining for more than 60 days, with a further 30 day withdrawal period without a Congressional declaration of war.
Making what he is doing ILLEGAL.edit on 23-1-2012 by r3axion because: (no reason given)
Section 1021 specifically authorizes "the authority for the Armed Forces of the United States to detain covered persons . . . pending disposition under the law of war.”
Included among "covered persons":
“A person who was a part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, including any person who has committed a belligerent act or has directly supported such hostilities in aid of such enemy forces.”
Disposition under the law of war includes:
(1) “Detention under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities,” (2) trial by military commission, (3) trial by “an alternative court or competent tribunal having lawful jurisdiction,” and (4) “Transfer to the custody or control of the person’s country of origin, any other foreign country, or any other foreign entity.”

A civil war started by Libyans? Really? Is that what the news lady told you?
Not only was Obama's actions in Lybia Illegal... It has been documented that American support of the "Arab Brotherhood" in specifically - Lybia - entailed marching side by side with members of Al - Queda.
