One of Obama’s strategies for “fundamentally transforming the United States of America” is to subordinate US sovereignty to international law. Instead of an independent America that pursues its national self-interest, the left wants an America restricted by international law. You could say their goal is the opposite of Washington’s famous advice against entangling alliances — the left very much wants an America entangled, bound and subservient to foreign countries.
So I’m suspicious of an Obama executive order that rescinds parts of a Reagon EO. As I understand it, Interpol is now no longer subject to search and seizure in America. This doesn’t mean that Interpol can search and seize American citizens, but that it cannot be searched and seized by American law enforcement. If any reader with an understanding of international law can tell us the significance of this, please do so in the comments.
UPDATE: Captain Ed looks at this EO revision. He makes an interesting point: American citizens have fewer rights before Interpol than captured foreign terrorists have in America.
