    Somehow it just doesn't sound like a good thing, to me.

    About mid-December, without fanfare and without explanation, President Obama signed an executive order that reportedly allows the international police organization---INTERPOL---to operate unrestrained by American law in certain key areas. The Obama executive order, according to Andy McCarthy, overturns an earlier Reagan EO that put limits on INTERPOL, holding it accountable to American law, thus protecting American's privacy and liberty.

    Very clearly, Interpol is working behind the scenes to identify ‘criminals’ who oppose climate change plans by the UN! Can’t you see what is going on? Can’t you see that we are seeing the creation of a Marxist regime far greater than the Soviets could have dreamt of? Far greater than the one now existing in China?

    BHO's INTERPOL executive order harmless?

    There's already a thread on this. The only thing that Obama changed was whether or not our customs agents could seize INTERPOL files. There is no exemption from US laws, no "unrestrained operations" in any areas.

    Why don't you actually read the EO, rather than take what bloggers have to say as gold?

    Think for yourself.

    Hasn't there already been THREE threads on this. The stupid right wing fear mongering was shot down in each one.

    But what the hell? Keep trying, maybe someone will believe your nonsense

    I only ever saw the one I linked, the one that I posted in heavily. But I don't doubt there were more.

    I just brought up the subject (3 threads, oops).. where's the fear mongering?

    The executive order is a fact, where's the nonsense?

    You have an opinion, why can't I?

    You're entitled to have any opinion you want, but you're not entitled to your own facts, and that's what you're asking for here.

    The executive order is a fact, yes.

    What you claimed is done by the executive order is NOT fact. It does NOT make Interpol exempt from American law, It does NOT give them powers over American law enforcement.

    I'm pretty sure that's what he meant by "fearmongering".

    When your opinion is countered by the facts, which you happen to know, then that is fear mongering and cowardice.

    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (22 U.S.C. 288), and in order to extend the appropriate privileges, exemptions, and immunities to the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), it is hereby ordered that Executive Order 12425 of June 16, 1983, as amended, is further amended by deleting from the first sentence the words "except those provided by Section 2(c), Section 3, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act" and the semicolon that immediately precedes them.

    BARACK OBAMA

    I gave a link to the executive order, gave an example of an interpretation of the effect, offered it up for discussion and gave my modest yet unstudied opinion.
