INTERPOL granted full immunity in the US

ShakaUVM (157947) writes "Without any fanfare or notice in the media, President Obama has granted INTERPOL diplomatic immunity while conducting investigations on American soil. While INTERPOL has been allowed to operate in the US in the past, under an executive order by President Reagan, they've had to follow the same rules as the FBI, CIA, etc., while on American soil. This means, among other things, INTERPOL is immune to Freedom of Information Act requests and that INTERPOL agents cannot be punished for most any crimes they may commit. Hopefully the worst we'll see from this is INTERPOL agents ignoring their speeding tickets."

Anyone still think electing obama was a good idea? Glad to know he'll just bow out of the way of the new world order. Who's pulling the strings now? Who's watching the watchmen?

Just like the climate deniers, "biggovernment.com" are stooges for the republicans.
