Executive Order Gives International Police Immunity in the U.S.

On December 17, Barack Obama quietly signed an executive order giving the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) international immunity from search, seizure and confiscation. 

The U.S. government can now do anything it wants, whether constitutional or not, keep the file with INTERPOL and an investigative journalist (remember Woodward and Berstein?) can not have access. There is no Freedom of Information Act for them.  INTERPOL is now beyond the reach of even our own CIA or FBI.

We  have an international police organization who now is above the law in the United States of America!! They are no longer subject to search and seizure by our police. They can not be made to turn over their documents under the Freedom of Information Act.  Because of this, our own government can therefore transfer any documents it wants to and they are beyond our reach as American citizens--legally. 

Our constitutional rights as American citizens have been placed in the hands of an international police organization that has been given the power to act on American soil!

This is all being done in the midst of the fight on healthcare, not to mention during the Christmas season, so that no one notices. 

Hat tip to the Anchoress.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
