Hope and Change

Remember all those promises of transparent government? Take a look at this:

Executive Order — Amending Executive Order 12425, signed December 16 and released a day later, grants the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) rights on American soil that place it beyond the reach of our own law enforcement agencies, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Schippert and Middleton note that Obama’s order removes protections placed upon INTERPOL by President Reagan in 1983. Obama’s order gives the group the authority to avoid Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests — which means this foreign law enforcement organization can operate free of an important safeguard against governmental abuse.

It gets even better:

Khoo Boon Hui of Singapore is the current president of the organization, and the current secretary general is American Ronald Noble. Noble is perhaps best known in America for overseeing the Treasury Department’s review of the disastrous 1993 raid and siege of a Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, that left nearly 80 people dead. Noble had cautioned against the initial raid plan as being too dangerous, but the lack of any significant ramifications for federal officials that approved of the raid and allegations of a cover-up have inspired conspiracy theorists to derisively dub Noble “the Enforcer.”

This is going to make the blue helmeted conspiracy crowd go nuts. One of the things that’s always been amazing about the left is that they do such an effective job of making people’s paranoid delusions seem to not, in fact, be paranoid delusions.

  1. Sebastian, once again you’ve scooped the MSM. I believe this is a potentially huge story, as INTERPOL can be made to enforce any UN policy, including against the RKBA, which BHO would wash his hands of, as it would be a UN matter, not under his immediate control (hardy-har).

    I’ve already contacted my congressman and Senators DeMint and Coburn on this issue. I suggest you and your readers do the same, as domination by the UN’s International Criminal Court seems to be a key part of the endgame here.

  2. Reagan is a (small g) god to me. If you do a bit of research you’ll find that he did this to us. Look up Executive Order 12425 and read the entirety. The government, both Dems and Repubs, have been pulling this crap on us for a while. The difference, we have the internet now, and I’m hoping that with more knowledge we can hold their toes to the fire.

  3. This doesn’t give INTERPOL a blank check to deprive US Citizens of their rights, privileges, etc under US law.

    Plus, I’m looking forward to some comedy the first time Inspector Clouseau tries to pull rank on a Texas Ranger.
