Conspiracy Theory is something I love to look at. I especially like the Conspiracy Theories that slant toward Conspiracy Reality. In saying that, Tony Newbill sent a link that is truly based on fact.
The link leads to a story about secret government documents that David Wallechinsky the author believes Americans should be aware. Wallechinsky is quite bi-partisan listing secret documents from both Democrats and Republicans.
Wallechinsky is critical of Obama signing a memo allowing the assassination of American citizens involved in terrorism against the USA living outside the USA.
Let me be clear about Obama. He is one of the most nefarious Presidents in U.S. history because his “Change” agenda is the transformation of America from a Christian ethics Free Market society to a Secular Humanist non-Judea-Christian Socialistic (probably more toward some form of Marxism) society. It nearly drives me crazy that a majority of American voters cannot see that Obama’s agenda will change the American Way for the worst.
In saying my attitude toward Obama I have to side with Obama on assassinating American traitors working against the USA from outside the nation. Here’s the thing. An American that works to bring down America and does so by hiding out on a foreign basis has ceased to be protected by the U.S. Constitution and has become an enemy combatant whether that person is a soldier, spy or terrorist. Taking a traitor out in a foreign nation is the result of the affairs of war as far as I am concerned.
In that same vein I am also a supporter of the Patriot Act as far as it is designed in a time of war to track down the enemies of the USA both foreign and domestic. Regardless of the Left telling us that we are at war with Islam, purist Muslims (i.e. Radical Islam) believe Islam is in a Jihad to end Free America to place Americans in submission to their intolerant Allah.
That which is unfortunate is that the Patriot Act provides the temptation for Presidential Administrations to abuse power beyond the design of the intention. The Patriot Act has been used against American citizens that have no direct part in the Global War on Terror (GWOT) domestically or on a foreign basis. This abuse of power by either Democrat or Republican Presidential Administration is a breach of the people’s trust of government protecting U.S. citizens. The breach of trust is what led then British citizens in the American Colonies to revolt and form a more perfect Union in which the people govern themselves under a just rule of law rather than a foreign despot.
It is my opinion that greater extreme prejudice needs to be used against Islamic Terrorists to at least render the GWOT as negligible within the U.S. borders. In accomplishing the efficacy the GWOT within the borders it will then be time to modify or end the Patriot Act so that the abuse of U.S. government power against domestic dwelling American citizens ceases.
I was not aware that President Bush and Vice President Cheney appeared before the 911 Commission under specific stipulations of no taping or transcribing but only secretarial note taking. AND that these notes are still classified. It is no wonder that 911 Conspiracy Theorists believe the al Qaeda Islamic Terrorist attack was actually an inside job by the U.S. government. I’m still not with 911 Truthers nonetheless why did Bush/Cheney want that 911 Commission interview off the books?
Being person that believes in extreme prejudice to bring the GWOT to a quicker end I am in favor of Waterboarding to extract information. Leftist cry torture, I like the terminology of enhanced interrogation techniques. The fine line between torture and enhanced interrogation techniques is physical result. Waterboarding that results in death is torture. Waterboarding that exacts the illusion of drowning without leaving physical marks is not torture. Waterboarding does not add physical scarring: no dismemberment of body parts and no scarring marks leftover from cutting or burning or electrifying or so on.
There is a bit of an irony in the Leftist whining of torture and the Leftist-in-Chief writing the memo for targeted assassination of foreign operating American citizens working to betray America. You realize Obama was thinking of prosecuting Bush Administration Officials and/or the Intelligence Community under the Bush Administration for Waterboarding, right?
Wallechinsky goes on to name quite a few secret documents that are hid from the American public. You should read the entire post.
