    Obama moves to make the War on Terror permanent | Glenn Greenwald | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk

    Complete with a newly coined, creepy Orwellian euphemism – 'disposition matrix' – the administration institutionalizes the most extremist powers a government can claim

    A primary reason for opposing the acquisition of abusive powers and civil liberties erosions is that they virtually always become permanent, vested not only in current leaders one may love and trust but also future officials who seem more menacing and less benign.

    The Washington Post has a crucial and disturbing story this morning by Greg Miller about the concerted efforts by the Obama administration to fully institutionalize – to make officially permanent – the most extremist powers it has exercised in the name of the war on terror.

    "The matrix contains the names of terrorism suspects arrayed against an accounting of the resources being marshaled to track them down, including sealed indictments and clandestine operations. US officials said the database is designed to go beyond existing kill lists, mapping plans for the 'disposition' of suspects beyond the reach of American drones."

    Permanent war will exist only if obama's dictatorship is also permanent. obama is turning into Kim Jong Il.

    It's been a permanent war since it started. There must always be a boogeyman, be it communists or terrorists.

    It started out with obama's personal kill lists and grew into the disposition matrix.

    The world has a way of dealing with maniacs like obama that have their finger on the button.

    Or it's the policy of the United States government, regardless of which party is in power, to remain in a constant state of warfare. I think the 20th and 21st century are pretty conclusive in this regard.

    Amazing to see people make such mind blowingly contradictory claims. Obama is trying to weaken our military with cuts, all while plunging us into eternal war as a massive power grab.

    That would be a Republican talking point. Everybody knows that military spending has risen under Obama.

    We've had "permanent war" since the 50s.
