When our Dear Leader signed the latest defense bill in to law, he expressed serious reservations about the power of the executive branch. His reservations? That the bill tried to limit the Executive’s power to detain people without due process.
President Obama ended 2011 by signing a major defense bill, despite what he called “serious reservations” about provisions regarding interrogations of terrorist suspects, sanctions against Iran, and relations with Russia.
“Some in Congress continue to insist upon restricting the options available to our counter-terrorism professionals and interfering with the very operations that have kept us safe,” Obama said in a statement issued from Hawaii, where he is spending his end-of-the-year vacation.
All this Change ™. He’s continued the ‘failed policies’ of the previous administration.. and in some cases went further (for all his faults, George W. Bush didn’t assassinate a US citizen, The One did.)
People who continue to support this administration for any reason related to civil rights are fools.
