President Obama invokes the NDAA, which authorizes the use of military force, and issues an executive order declaring the “threat” of Iran a
The video below shows this issuance of President Obama executive order which declares Iran’s threat to cut off oil supplies a national emergency.
The executive order directs all government agencies to respond immediately to the threat. It further invokes the authority of the 2012 NDAA (National
Defense Authorization Act) which gives the President the power to launch military action against any nation without the approval of Congress.
Ironically, the State of Emergency order also accuses the Iranian central bank of deceptive banking practices.
I dont even know why this is necessary, arent we still in an emergency from 9/11? Do we really need two emergencies in order to get the message across
that they dont like iran? (three emergencies counting the economic crisis)
