Irony Alert!

From the Washington Post

President Obama will issue an executive order Monday that will allow U.S. officials for the first time to impose sanctions against foreign nationals found to have used new technologies, from cellphone tracking to Internet monitoring, to help carry out grave human rights abuses.

LOL, Foreign nationals identified by NSA communications monitoring as violating this order will be pinpointed by satellites and surveillance drones and hit with a cruise missile.

Hard to picture any American President in the last 20 years signing this with a straight face.   Is there a Federal law enforcement agency or major police force in this country who is NOT violating this order, had it applied to American citizens?

    Not limited to foreign nationals. At least one US citizen was targeted by our Nobel Peace Prize-winning President for extermination by flying killer robots.

    Serious business. But I couldn't help but immediately think of the scene from "Taken" where Liam Neeson is in the kitchen intimidating and blackmailing the Albanian bad guys. He tells him they've been under satellite surveillance, and the one bad guy standing over in the corner looks all concerned and pulls the curtain back and starts looking up at the sky out of the window. LMAO.

    Do as I say...

  4. Mister Pickles:

    China. What about China? Obama should've consulted with them first this is NOT something he can just do by himself.

    Seriously though the Chinese are going to be the main targets of this if it is fairly applied.

    Irony is wasted on these people.

    Ironic indeed

    "In August 2011, 35 ACLU affiliates filed over 380 public records requests with state and local law enforcement agencies to ask about their policies, procedures and practices for tracking cell phones.

    What we have learned is disturbing. While virtually all of the over 200 police departments that responded to our request said they track cell phones, only a tiny minority reported consistently obtaining a warrant and demonstrating probable cause to do so. While that result is of great concern, it also shows that a warrant requirement is a completely reasonable and workable policy."
