Exerpt from the Examiner:<quoted text>Willard, which Executive Order did our President Obama sign to block all Sunshine Laws in America?
What is most disturbing to police chiefs and officers in the US is that President Obama has provided foreign officers and international agencies exemptions from laws and regulations to which US cops must comply. An amendment to an executive order secretly signed by President Barack Obama on December 16, 2009 gives police officers from foreign governments who work for INTERPOL police powers in the United States.
"This Obama executive order is a slap in the face of US cops -- who must adhere to laws and regulations including FOIA -- but also a slap in the face of American citizens who may be abused by these non-citizen cops from countries that don't recognize our constitutional protections," warns former New York City detective and Marine intelligence officer Sidney Franes.
When President Ronald Reagan's passed an executive order addressing INTERPOL, it clearly spelled out limitations such as requiring that INTERPOL operations be subject to several U.S. laws such as the Freedom of Information Act. While many opposed Reagan's executive order, it was unchallenged due to the Cold War.
"Under the Obama administration such Reagan-era limitations have been kicked to the wayside by a globalist White House," said Frances.
Obama's executive order reads as follows:
Amending Executive Order 12425 designating INTERPOL as a public international organization entitled to enjoy certain privileges, exemptions and immunities
"By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (22 U.S.C. 288), and in order to extend the appropriate privileges, exemptions, and immunities to the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), it is hereby ordered that Executive Order 12425 of June 16, 1983, as amended, is further amended by deleting from the first sentence the words "except those provided by Section 2(c), Section 3, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act" and the semicolon that immediately precedes them."
"What Obama has done is he's given foreign police agencies more power than our own police have or should have. What's next? INTERPOL cops raiding American homes based on unlawfully obtained information?" asks political strategist Mike Baker.
"This executive order signing received almost no media coverage and follows the recent creation of an International Intelligence Agency."
