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.

“Terror Suspects” will be interpreted as “Christians” or “any who oppose 0bama”.

He is a Muslim and a tool for the Saudis. I know people who do business in Africa at a high level and the execs and govt people in Africa all have he is a Muslim.

The Saudi money bought him the election.

Obama is willing to sell out America’s security to score political points to satisfy the red meat left. This man is an enemy of the state!

Yes he is an enemy of the state. A traitor within the white house. Feeding agitprop to the world to justify a continued jihad against the US. And this from the Commander in Chief.

Obama really wants a civil war, doesn’t he? No wonder the comparisons to Lincoln.

These memos will never be interpreted as they should be, they will be viewed as prosecutorial evidence.

(military apprehension without warrants?)

‘long as the president or another high official authorized the action.’

LOL.

The Constitution isn’t to defend the ‘terror’ suspects, but to limit Gov’t.

In that memo, Yoo wrote that the president could treat terrorist suspects in the United States like an invading foreign army. For instance, he said, the military would not have to get a warrant to storm a building to prevent terrorists from detonating a bomb.

Now, they'll have to wait until they track down a judge. Great plan.

Let the Democrats argue against what this Yoo guy wrote. Should be fun.

We should talk about Osama’s hero FDR and his forcibly removing Japanese-Americans from their homes and placing them in internment camps.

When 0bama says he intends to be like Lincoln,
he means that he wants to start and preside over
a Civil War that ends up killing and subjugating (like a certain Religion of Piece) all his enemies.

Traitors. I want justice, and now I want revenge against these traitors.

There was no rational reason to release these documents.

Obama and the dems must completely fail.... for America to survive.

‘That “has done us more harm than good,” he declared. “I’ve often said that the test of a great nation is whether it will adhere to its core values not only when it is easy but when it is hard”

Hypocracy, Core values? Remember the 2nd ammendment, Holder, that is a core value.

Oh yes, the next two years will be very interesting.

1. The economy will not rebound this year, and next year, if there is growth, it will be anemic.

2. North Korea will test an ICBM that can hit the US.

3. Pakistan is in the process of breaking up. What happens to their nukes?

4. Israel will attack Iran.

So, if all this happens, AND the US gets attacked, what will the community organizer do?

I wonder why we have never seen Obama’s college transcripts.

Surely, anyone that has passed a bar exam knows what the Sedition Act is....hmmmmm.

Obama is pushing the envelope....another impeachment is in the works and this time we will be trying a President that has committed Sedition.

Are you listening traitor Obama???

The congressional bozo gaggle worship the kenyan klown, so even with another 911 they will pass the buck/imagine a Bush buggieman/project the guilt, to give thier demigod cover. Think about how many Catholics (I really should not capitalize that ...) are in the House and Seante, catholics who support and defend Roe v Wade slaughter yet claim they believe in and by inference fear God. The democrap party has become Satans agents in Amerika, and this very wicked man spawned from the criminal enterprise democrat party is now their champion. Do not be surprised at any evil coming from these evil bastards in DC.

Illegal Immigrants (like the 911 Guys) have no rights like legal Immigrants.
Sounds like something Bush tried.....THAT WORKED !

Safe since 911

Not so now, with Dufus in charge.

I saw this on down in the article — “While they were once important legal pillars of the U.S. fight against al-Qaida, all of the memos were withdrawn in the final days of the Bush administration.”

Where is Jack Bauer when you need him... (i.e., “24”... LOL...)...

Everything Obama does has the same goal—ongoing redefinition of the past so as to make Obama seem like the savior of us all, rescuing us from the evil Bush. This is all he cares about.

You get the feeling Obama probably intends to denigrate the memory of those Americans who fought back against the terrorists on Flight 93.

“Obama really wants a civil war, doesn’t he? No wonder the comparisons to Lincoln.”

And he thinks he’ll win, and consolidate power for the party in the aftermath. Much as Lincoln did.

If he “wins” such a war, there will be a new Constitution and a wholly new way to do economics, business, and justice in the USA.
