Should Obama And Congress Be Arrested Under The NDAA?

August 7, 2012

John Aziz Azizonomics
Should President Obama (alongside Lindsay Graham and John McCain) be wearing an orange jumpsuit?

Welcome to the beautiful and surreal reality of life under American corporatism, under a Congress that churns out thousands  and thousands of pages of (often contradictory) legislation a year.

If providing material assistance to al-Qaeda is illegal under the National Defence Authorization Act (2012), and Obama and Congress are sending $25 million of aid to al-Qaeda-affiliated Syrian opposition, aren’t Congress and President Obama violating their own law? Should Obama (or at least the Justice Department) not be using “all necessary and appropriate force” including “the power to indefinitely detain” to prevent Obama and Congress from assisting al-Qaeda? Did anyone in Congress or the Obama administration even bother to read the law that they were signing? Do Federal laws no longer apply to lawmakers?

The only question left from this abrupt and absurd turnaround — from funding bin Laden’s mujahideen thirty years ago, to ten years ago declaring war on al-Qaeda, to today sending them material assistance — would appear to be whether or not Obama will pull a 1984 and claim that “we have always been at war with Eurasia“.

The whole of The Bush Administration would have to be arrested and put on trial for their war crimes and crimes against humanity!

The wanton murder of many thousands of innocent Iraqi men,women,and children in the American invasion and occupation of a sovereign nation that did nothing to the U.S. all based on Lies to,in reality,steal Iraqi oil.

Congress, as a matter of course, writes exemptions for itself in the laws everyone else suffers under. Remember insider trading?

Sounds like the crapper is getting sentimental towards the Enemy.
War is Hell. remember the thought about Brian Terry as occupational hazard.?
WAR doesn't discriminate, remember.

Well, discuss the war crimes with congress, you remember the democratic congress that voted on the war!

He honestly thinks he's above the law along with most of our government.
If they had to live under the laws they write for us, there would be no Obamacare.
There's no way they would subject themselves or their families to that nightmare.
But they make it a law that WE have to.

Laws have meant nothing to Obama. He just writes an executive order or a new regulation to do what he wants. No bothering with those pesky laws or the Constitution.

Yes, they should be arrested per their own law for giving material support to a terrorist organization.
