Secret anti-terror Bush memos made public by Obama
AP ^ | March 2, 2009 | DEVLIN BARRETT

Posted on 03/02/2009 1:56:34 PM PST by SolidWood

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department on Monday released a long-secret legal document from 2001 in which the Bush administration claimed the military could search and seize terror suspects in the United States without warrants.

The legal memo was written about a month after the Sept. 11 terror attacks. It says constitutional protections against unlawful search and seizure would not apply to terror suspects in the U.S., as long as the president or another high official authorized the action.

The memo was one of nine released Monday by the Obama administration.

It makes perfect sense and I reacted when I saw the first mention of it. Till today I was beginning to think it was just me.

His visit to the MidEast resulted in much media about how he didn’t visit wounded American soldiers.

I’ve been seeing the Muslimized Obama logo and figured they were spurious photoshops.

Where’s all the evidence?

The Union postmasters stayed on the job and continued to deliver the mail all through the Civil War. Afterwards their pay was recomputed and they were made whole for their loss of Union income during the war.

Collecting taxes was the justification for just about everything the federales did (outside of national defense) right up through the early 1930s. In fact, until quite recently, marijuana laws were based on taxation.

He can release anti-terror memos, but not his BC, college records, or medical records. What a POS.

I wonder if your statement might wake up some enamored Obamacons.

The contrast is very easy to understand!

I was only being flip and sarcastic.

You are correct and I had not considered that one.

I have to wonder if there is not something equally illegal about releasing such.

"The Saudi money bought him the election.

You are the first I've known to say that. Could you expand on it or explain? I've suspected it all along."

If you look at contribution amounts to Obama, there are literally millions of them that are odd amounts like $97.53 or $1754.36. Those are very indicative of foreign currency amounts that were converted to dollars.

It was uncovered late in the campaign (but not reported by the fawning media) that the Obama campaign had removed the address verification check on credit card transactions, thereby making it possible for credit card donations from anywhere in the world to be made without checking that they were coming from the US.

The visit to the M.E. was not the visit that you mention. It was an early visit during the primaries that sealed the deal. He either went country hopping or the heads of state congregated at one spot (Syria?).

The Muslim Obama logos were not photo-shopped jokes. They were a way to raise a great deal of Muslim money and Islamic support while back-door-ing campaign laws. The big money, however, was in the bundeling of foreign charge card donations.

Most of the capitalists are armed and able to fight just like the Irish did. Except we are smarter.

That said, I do not advocate breaking any laws. The ACLU has taken steps to be anonymous. Why would they do that? I bet that ACORN is also taking steps to be anonymous. Does that say anything?

Yes they could and might be the one doing a good job at it now.

I believe we have plenty of inside enemies that are willing to do their bidding, more than willing, they're working as fast as possible before the sheep stir from their nap.

“Is Obama insane?”

it’s a point-of-view issue. Obama is following a Marxist-based plan to bring socialism to the USA. Eliminate capital, confiscate then redistribute wealth, diminish the middle class, and so on. To a Marxist it makes perfect sense, and they are happy to see it happening here and now.

To you and me, it’s insane- but we are not Marxists.

Remember Obama’s stated surprise when the Supremes, in Brown vs Board of Education, didn’t write in wealth redistribution? And he sees the Constitution as flawed because it does not allow Marxist redistribution schemes. To him, as a Marxist, that’s what’s insane.

Which of the non-seceded states did “the rebs” attack first?

They attacked federal property in Charleston. They also attempted to prevent the president from fulfilling his Constitutionally-mandated duties.

As far as non-seceded states, the rebs in concert with a rabidly pro-slavery governor and his legislator henchmen criminally ignored the expressed will of the people of the state of Tennessee and used the Confederate army to invade and overrun the non-seceded state. In took the Union army three years to drive out the Confederate invaders.

Abe suspended Habeus Corpus.

So did Jeff Davis. But while Lincoln only put suspected bridge burners in prison, ol Jeff tended to hang them. But after the Confederates fulfilled Davis's instruction that the body should hang on the bridge for a few days as a warning to those who would defy the Confederate New Order, I'm sure the survivors could have what was left of the body.

Lincoln was dealing with an honorable opposing regime. He was fully justified in his actions.

Exactly!

The other candidates had “verification” technology on their websites, so when you sent donations via credit card, it could be verified. Obama’s website “disposed” of such useless mechanisms.
