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.

The Sedition act was not popular and is considered an historic relic best left alone.

BTW, best bet on what you hear of that nature is to keep it to yourself ~ Obama has his people scouring FR every day trying to pick up every little tidbit.

Lincoln did not start the war. The rebs did. The secessionists were nothing more than glorified outlaws.

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

“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.

I'm hearing an awful lot of people around here talking about solving this crisis with bullets.

That is an irresponsible idea and irresponsible talk.

None. None whatsoever.

You, I, and everyone else here are nothing to these people.

Lots of circumstantial evidence all over.

1. Saudis own DC.
2. The Libs and envornmentalsists NO energy policy benefits the Saudis. W e have 4 times the Suaiuds oil rserves in coal diesel, shale oil, and ND oil this is just onshore in the lower 48 states.
3. Obama has close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). The MB builds all the mosques in the west and is used to export Islam to the west. Funded by the Saudis.
4.Saudis are still backers of Al Qeada.
5. Saudis promote and export Wanhabbi Islam which is incredibly intolerant and preached global conquest/Caliphate.
6. The Saudis paid for all of Obama’s education and pulled strings to get him in the best schools - he is not that smart.
7. He is a Muslim.

There are more things but I need to dig through notes. We are energy serfs for the Saudis.

Obama is deliberately selling us out. His stated agenda has been to take us down a peg or two. Criminalizing the previous administration for the sake of "world opinion" effectively ends our nation's grand tradition of a peaceful transition of power.

He's a jive turkey.

So? Who cares? He’s just releasing it so he can justify his actions in case he gets his brownshirt Civilian army. He won’t get that Civilian army. That will be the breaking point. If he begins to do that, and isn’t stopped, many people I know are getting out of here.

Channel surfing last week I heard Rachel Madcow make a statement that essentially outlined this intention.

My guess is that O forwarded this document to his friends in the msm.

Eric Holder is every bit as dangerous as obama, he’s the match to obama’s keg of dynamite.

I might add, he is willing to sacrifice all Americans on the global altar.

He must be stopped. Impeach him now for sedition.

I don’t doubt any of what you say. Still, he did have to present himself as an attractive candidate and get elected.

But it makes sense. So much of his record breaking donation money was unaccounted for.

My question is, why does Congress bend over for the Saudis? What is the purpose?
