Catch and Release, Becomes, Catch or Kill.

January 27, 2007

The Bush administration has now given the U. S. military his permission to kill the Iranian agents that are captured in Iraq, instead of holding them for 3 to 5 days then releasing them. Read on.>>>

Just so it is out in the open, we are in a country where we do not belong. We are there under lies and deception that came from a man that said he is working for the people, and dose everything to point out that he is not. In fact, he has sent more people into the meat grinder. He is now picking at Iran by, Building in the Gulf, and now resending the Capture and Release order.

WaPo

For more than a year, U.S. forces in Iraq have secretly detained dozens of suspected Iranian agents, holding them for three to four days at a time. The “catch and release” policy was designed to avoid escalating tensions with Iran and yet intimidate its emissaries. U.S. forces collected DNA samples from some of the Iranians without their knowledge, subjected others to retina scans, and fingerprinted and photographed all of them before letting them go.

If Bush was worried about building tension; he had a funny way of showing it.

“Well, I made it very clear, as had the secretary, that our policy is going to be to protect our troops in Iraq,” Bush said. “It makes sense that if somebody’s trying to harm our troops, or stop us from achieving our goal, or killing innocent citizens in Iraq, that we will stop them. It’s an obligation we all have . . . to protect our folks and achieve our goal.”
Bush also said that “stopping outside influences from killing our soldiers or hurting Iraqi people” does not mean that “we want to expand this beyond the borders.”

Now translated out of Bush speak, that means I will attack Iran as soon as Congress gives me the money for Afghanistan. Look, it is going to happen, even the MSM sees it coming. I have been pointing this out for almost a year and a half. You have two mental midgets going at a battle of wits, and they both are drawing blanks. Sooner or later they are going to start tossing nukes, like water balloons out the 9th story window of a down town hotel. Moreover, it will be sooner that later. One thing that might make this null and void, is if Israel starts a confrontation first.

Ok quickly on to the thing that could be coming our way is, Martial Law. The (P)Resident is now telling the congress that he does not plan to listen to them. He has turned from the Generals in the field and placed those who go along with what he says. So what does he have to lose by going it alone, and stifling the people.

Now this may be somewhat suspect, but here it goes. Toward Freedom

Public Law 109-364, or the “John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007” (H.R.5122) (2), which was signed by the commander in chief on October 17th, 2006, in a private Oval Office ceremony, allows the President to declare a “public emergency” and station troops anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to “suppress public disorder.”

Bush has already skirted around one precaution put in place to control the number of troops that can be sent into battle.

In a stealth maneuver, President Bush has signed into law a provision which, according to Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), will actually encourage the President to declare federal martial law (1). It does so by revising the Insurrection Act, a set of laws that limits the President’s ability to deploy troops within the United States. The Insurrection Act (10 U.S.C.331 -335) has historically, along with the Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C.1385), helped to enforce strict prohibitions on military involvement in domestic law enforcement. With one cloaked swipe of his pen, Bush is seeking to undo those prohibitions.

As I have pointed out before, the administration through Homeland Security, awarded contracts to Kellog, Browning & Root, (a subsidiary of Halliburton.) to Build and refurbish Detention Camps, and closed Military Bases.

An article on “recent contract awards” in a recent issue of the slick, insider “Journal of Counterterrorism & Homeland Security International” reported that “global engineering and technical services powerhouse KBR [Kellog, Brown & Root] announced in January 2006 that its Government and Infrastructure division was awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to support U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities in the event of an emergency.” “With a maximum total value of $385 million over a five year term,” the report notes, “the contract is to be executed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,” “for establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities to augment existing ICE Detention and Removal Operations (DRO) – in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs.” The report points out that “KBR is the engineering and construction subsidiary of Halliburton.” (3) So, in addition to authorizing another $532.8 billion for the Pentagon, including a $70-billion “supplemental provision” which covers the cost of the ongoing, mad military maneuvers in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other places, the new law, signed by the president in a private White House ceremony, further collapses the historic divide between the police and the military: a tell-tale sign of a rapidly consolidating police state in America, all accomplished amidst ongoing U.S. imperial pretensions of global domination, sold to an “emergency managed” and seemingly willfully gullible public as a “global war on terrorism.”

If that was not bad enough or point towards a distinct possibility of Martial Law, that little law that Bush signed called, Military Commissions Act of 2006.

The law also facilitates militarized police round-ups and detention of protesters, so called “illegal aliens,” “potential terrorists” and other “undesirables” for detention in facilities already contracted for and under construction by Halliburton. That’s right. Under the cover of a trumped-up “immigration emergency” and the frenzied militarization of the southern border, detention camps are being constructed right under our noses, camps designed for anyone who resists the foreign and domestic agenda of the Bush administration.

So with that group of thoughts in your mind, if you have a weak stomach, turn your head and bend over, and appease.

    First, let me say that I thank your son for his service for the country. Yes, I believe that you can support the troops and not the policy. I too have friends, and two cousins that have sons, and a daughter over there. I have also lost a friend in battle. I have felt the loss from this war.

    With that said, I have said before I am not all about this war. I have my eye on all that goes on. And no I was not a big fan of Clinton. Just so we understand each other.

    As I pointed out to the gentleman, this goes way beyond the office of the (P)resident. You need to read The PNAC agenda, and The Committee for a Strong Europe, to understand what I mean. I suggest you Google them, then we can talk.

    ABA,

    Yes, the Insurrection Act of 1807 or as it is now known “Enforcement of the Laws to Restore Public Order Act” and Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 are both designed to limit Presidential powers for using the military in domestic Law Enforcement operations other than authorized by the U.S. Constitution or as ordered by Congress. Also, you mention the Military Commission Act of 2006 and John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007 and you insinuate that both acts are the sole product of President Bush as usual. You are very predictable in your text.

    What you don’t say is that both the Acts were voted on by the UNITED STATES CONGRESS and were passed by an overwhelming majority and in turn the acts were sent to President Bush for signature. Even the far left, civil rights champion, Sen. Edward Kennedy spoke in favor of the acts, stating he felt the acts gave the President no more power than already existed. Although, Sen. Kennedy’s, left leaning brother, Sen. Patrick Leahy, did in fact speak against the acts as he has been known to do with almost anything republican. Go look at his voting record.

    The bottom line, Congress passed both acts, and that means your Congressional representative, ABA, voted on them. Why don’t you contact this person and inquire how he or she voted and quit laying all your gripes at the Presidential door step. Also, if you are going to post all this OPINIONATED crap, which you are free to do, then do us all a favor and post all sides of the crap coming out of Washington today. We can think for ourselves. Don’t just pick and choose small snippets of American law, Senate speeches, Martial Law criteria, etc. to win public support for your agenda. You are as bad as some of the news media on TV. We must look at the totality of an issue at hand.

    As I have stated before, I do not agree with all of the decisions in Washington and I also have a son serving in the U.S. military, but let us all be even handed here and remember there are many hands in the pot in Washington when decisions are made that effect us in our daily life.

    I will end with this quote from one of our famous Naval Admirals who fought in one of the nation’s worst wars in American history, “May our Country be right in war, but right or wrong, it is our Country”. I hope the point is taken.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA

    I visited your site this morning, and discovered why you feel the way you do about what I have written above. I also love my country, but unlike Americans like yourself I have not patriotism blind me to the point that I do not see what is and has been going on with this administration, and those who came before them. (Including the Clinton administration.)

    I don’t know if you have read the PNAC agenda, but it is a good place to start if you want to see what is planed in the Middle East. I have done extensive research on the Project For The New American Century, The Henry Jackson Society and The Committee For A Strong Europe. (The CSE is PNAC, and has chosen John McCain as co-chairperson.) The CSE has learned from their past mistakes and has not put up a website.

    So as you can see I do know what side to fight for, The Side of the American people.

    Hi

    Well, at least someone has a handle on just who the enemy is in this world and a grasp on what’s worth fighting for.

    But, its not you. Sorry, pal.
