Obama Prepares Executive Order For Indefinite Detention

Tyler Durden's picture





 

First president Obama becomes Bush in all but name with respect to his predecessor's economic policies, and now he follows by espousing Bush's interpretation of "civil rights" as well. According to Pro Publica, the White House is preparing an Executive Order for indefinite detention. And while the premise behind a comparable draft has been circulating around for 18 months, the uptake was seen as problematic. The "humanitarian" premise behind the order is that it will "provide for the periodic reviews of evidence against dozens of prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay... and allow for the possibility that detainees from countries like Yemen might be released if circumstances change." That's the theory. The "practice" is that the Order will, as the name implies, afford the administration the option of "indefinite detention as a long-term Obama administration policy and
makes clear that the White House alone will manage a review process for
those it chooses to hold without charge or trial." In other words all those, and we assume that the Order is not merely targeting those involved in September 11, and is wider in its scope, who are perceived by the administration as "high value detainees" will be denied due process, and will be held in captivity essentially indefinitely with no legal recourse, for as long as the "review process" so deems fit. As for the "theory" aspect, Politico summarizes just how much of a bold lie Obama's promise two years ago to close Guantanamo has become: "Nearly two years after Obama's pledge to close the prison at Guantanamo,
more inmates there are formally facing the prospect of lifelong
detention and fewer are facing charges than the day Obama was elected." In other words, Obama has one upped Dubya not only when it comes to Republican economic policy, but has in fact surpassed his abrogation of basic human rights. And seeing how in the aftermath of the Assange arrest (speaking of which, Julian better run following this announcement), it is only a matter of time before that whole 'Internet free speech' premise is perceived to be a form of treason, by the likes of Biden, Palin and Lieberman, potentially punishable if not by death, then certainly indefinite, lifelong detention.

More from Pro Publica:

After taking office, the Obama administration reviewed the detainee population at Guantanamo Bay and chose 48 prisoners for indefinite detention. Officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that number will likely increase in coming months as some detainees are moved from a transfer category to a continued detention category.

If signed by President Obama, the new order will provide added review for detainees designated for long-term detention. The order, which is being drafted jointly by White House staff in the National Security council and the White House counsel, will offer detainees in this category a minimal review every six months and then a more lengthy annual review. Detainees will have access to an attorney, to some evidence against them and the ability to challenge their continued detention.

Prisoners who have been deemed "high-value detainees," including the alleged conspirators of the 2001 attacks, have been designated for prosecution in civilian or military courts.

In 2008, Guantanamo detainees won the right to challenge the lawfulness of their detention in court. The executive order aims to create an executive branch review which would occur separately from the court review and would weigh the necessity of the detention, rather than its lawfulness, officials said.

"Perhaps the dangerousness of the detainee's country of origin could change, or the group that the detainee is affiliated with could cease to exist," one official explained.

Sorry to interject, but the humor factor of the possibility that someone would be released from Guantanamo after the CIA lowers the threat level of i.e., Yemen from burgndy to mauve, is just as powerful as that of someone stating that Bernanke will ever stop printing monetary ones and zeroes.

At the end of the day, this is merely another example of what happens when Congress refuses to play ball:

Weeks later, administration officials said the White House had decided to work with Congress on indefinite detention, rather than through Executive Order. But by the end of 2009, the White House had said it would not support legislation.

Then, in 2010, a government task force on Guantanamo completed a year-long review that placed 48 detainees in long-term detention. In its report, task force members said those detainees would be "subject to periodic Executive Branch review."

..

Jameel Jaffer, a national security lawyer at the American Civil Liberties Association, agreed that "more review is better." But he said that an executive order would only "normalize and institutionalize indefinite detention and other policies," that were set in place by the Bush administration.

While we hope we are wrong, we have this very nagging feeling that the timing and sudden reappearance of this order on the docket is in advance of one or more charges of espionage about to be lobbed at Wikileaks... And to think, all Julian Assange threatened to do was to take down Bank of America, something that should have happened over two years ago if that whole 'free market', risk/return thing was even remotely close to what it is taught to be at various ivy draped business schools.

While this order is legal bullshittery, just as it was under Bush, it is clearly just an attempt to deal with the poor saps already locked up in Guantanamo, not an effort to end dissent and lock us all up.

The time to get pissed about this was when GW Bush started this crap nine years ago.  But I'm guessing that many of you Obama haters conveniently overlooked it at the time.

I'm troubled by it.  I think that the Constitution has been trashed over the last ten years basically without a peep from the judicial branch.

What I'm really just commenting on here is the ZH tendency to jump to conspiracy theories and a bunker mentality.

To me this sounds like nothing more ominous than attempt number whatever to deal with the prisoners at Guantanamo who no one can figure out what to do with. 

The administration's only other option is to take the position that they can't be held indefinitely.  Since no one knows what to do with them, that isn't really an option.

Try 80 years. or some here would go back to 1913 or so.

And the administration's position was that they could not be held indefinitely.

So I've fired up the ol' popcorn machine, got a bit of coconut oil, gonna sit back and watch the moonbats go crazy.  After all, they were promised an end to Camp X-Ray et al.

Oh, yes, they know what to do with "them".  just, well, either alternative isn't really politically attractive for their bigger picture.

The kings of France had this power prior to the revolution.  They could have anyone thrown into prison at any time.  No charges, no trial, no appeal, no sentence, no release.  Those unfortunates stayed in prison until the king released them or they died.  It was notorious and could happen to anyone.  It was one of the causes of the French Revolution.  There really was a man in an iron mask imprisoned in the Bastille, you know.  He was held under a lettre de cachet.

The problem with the detainees began when they became "detainees." Even Bush's policies were too politically correct in this regard, to take these combatants into custody. They should have been executed on the battlefield. No prisoners in the first place, problem solved.

Nice sentiment, but you might want to look at the distribution of electoral college votes and see how close 2012 will already be, and then consider the fact that a number of "get out the vote" actions, including hundreds of billions of slush funds, aka stimulus money, are going to be dedicated to filling in any gaps.

Big O can't run in 2012 without handing over his long form birth certificate. The one that states the hospital, date/time of birth, delivery doctor and has a raised seal. Something he has spent over 2 million dollars to avoid doing to date. Several states now have laws on the books, passed since 2008 because of his reticence to produce his long form, requiring the proper vetting of presidential candidates, something you would have thought they would have considered without a law. Nonetheless, Obama is hiding something (reference his first presidential act of sealing all his past records) and will NOT run again in 2012 but will be removed or decline for some unknown reason. Remember where you heard it first :).

While on the surface it seems dubious, you are absolutely correct. The states do have those laws and Onama will have to produce the BC, meaning he either will not run again or they've already produced a great-looking phony document.

For now, I'll go with the theory that he won't run, in which case, one of three possible scenarios emerges. One, he goes quietly into the night, on the grounds that he's worn out, wants to spend more time with Michelle and the girls, blah, blah, blah, or he suffers a primary defeat at the hands of the hated Hillary.

Third scenario is the nightmare, where we're under martial law, or at war with China or some other impressive foe (though China is the 800 pound gorilla).

Of the three, none are good, but I'd think the Hillary option is the one most likely.

In  mere 60 years, we're back where we began. It's only slightly more subtle this time, the take over that never ended anyways. Everywhere, all around, the signs of our new subjugation, same as the old subjugation are everywhere. 

Learnt from our past? Hardly. This time, it's a crush for the entry, not the exits.

The First Time I Heard of Barack
Written by Thomas Fife

During the period of roughly February 1992 to mid 1994, I was making frequent trips to Moscow, Russia, in the process of starting a software development joint-venture company with some people from the Russian scientific community. One of the men in charge on the Russian side was named V. M.; he had a wife named T.M.

V. was a level-headed scientist while his wife was rather deeply committed to the losing Communist cause – a cause she obviously was not abandoning.

One evening, during a trip early in 1992, the American half of our venture were invited to V. & T.’s Moscow flat as we were about to return to the States. The party went well and we had the normal dinner discussions.

As the evening wore on, T. developed a decidedly rough anti-American edge – one her husband tried to quietly rein in.

The bottom line of the tirade she started against the United States went something like this:

“You Americans always like to think that you have the perfect government and your people are always so perfect. Well then, why haven’t you had a woman president by now? You had a chance to vote for a woman vice-president and you didn’t do it.”

The general response went something along the lines that you don’t vote for someone just because of their sex. Besides, you don’t vote for vice-president, but the president and vice-president as a ticket.

“Well, I think you are going to be surprised when you get a black president very soon.”

The consensus we expressed was that we didn’t think there was anything innately barring that. The right person at the right time and sure, America would try to vote for the right person, be he or she black or not.

“What if I told you that you will have a black president very soon and he will be a Communist?”

The out-of-the-blue remark was met by our stares. She continued, “Well, you will; and he will be a Communist.”

It was then that the husband unsuccessfully tried to change the subject; but she was on a roll and would have nothing of it. One of us asked, “It sounds like you know something we don’t know.”

“Yes, it is true. This is not some idle talk. He is already born and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of Presidents. He is what you call “Ivy League”. You don’t believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That’s right, a chocolate baby! And he’s going to be your President.”

She became more and more smug as she presented her stream of detailed knowledge and predictions so matter-of-factly – as though all were foregone conclusions. “It’s all been thought out. His father is not an American black so he won’t have that social slave stigma. He is intelligent and he is half white and has been raised from the cradle to be an atheist and a Communist. He’s gone to the finest schools. He is being guided every step of the way and he will be irresistible to America.”

We sat there not knowing what to say. She was obviously very happy that the Communists were doing this and that it would somehow be a thumbing of their collective noses at America: they would give us a black president and he’d be a Communist to boot. She made it quite obvious that she thought that this was going to breathe new life into world Communism. From this and other conversations with her, she always asserted that Communism was far from dead.

She was full of little details about him that she was eager to relate. I thought that maybe she was trying to show off that this truly was a real person and not just hot air.

She rattled off a complete litany. He was from Hawaii. He went to school in California. He lived in Chicago. He was soon to be elected to the legislature. “Have no doubt: he is one of us, a Soviet.”

At one point, she related some sort of San Francisco connection, but I didn’t understand what the point was and don’t recall much about that. I was just left with the notion that she considered the city to be some sort of a center for their activity here.

Since I had dabbled in languages, I knew a smattering of Arabic. I made a comment: “If I remember correctly, ‘Barack’ comes from the Arabic word for ‘Blessing.’ That seems to be an odd name for an American.” She replied quickly, “Yes. It is ‘African’”, she insisted, “and he will be a blessing for world Communism. We will regain our strength and become the number one power in the world.”

She continued with something to the effect that America was at the same time the great hope and the great obstacle for Communism. America would have to be converted to Communism and Barack was going to pave the way.

So, what does this conversation from 1992 prove?

Well, it’s definitely anecdotal. It doesn’t prove that Obama has had Soviet Communist training nor that he was groomed to be the first black American president, but it does show one thing that I think is very important. It shows that Soviet Russian Communists knew of Barack from a very early date. It also shows that they truly believed among themselves that he was raised and groomed Communist to pave the way for their future. This report on Barack came personally to me from one of them long before America knew he existed.

Although I had never before heard of him, at the time of this conversation Obama was 30+ years old and was obviously tested enough that he was their anticipated rising star.

Dr.Sandi,

Yes. I have had a lifetime to observe the American scene and I don't know where it comes from.  My own hypothesis is that growing up with the boob tube damages attention span and capacity to separate fantasy from reality. 

But IMO, the good news is that the public is beginning to sober up and we still have the triparite government.

Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, wasa president from 1913 until 1921. The war years as well as the first Red Scare resulted in censorship on a large scale. Those making anti-war and anti-American comments or publications often found themselves arrested, tried, convicted, and imprisoned for doing so.

 

FDR, Democrat, said, "All Americans abhor censorship, just as they abhor war. But the experience of this and of all other Nations has demonstrated that some degree of censorship is essential in wartime, and we are at war."

 

Harry Truman, Democrat:

 

January 15, 1946

CITATION TO ACCOMPANY THE AWARD OF THE

MEDAL FOR MERIT TO BYRON PRICE

FOR EXCEPTIONALLY meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services as Director, Office of Censorship, from December 20, 1941, until August 15, 1945· Faced by a choice on one hand of instituting a system of voluntary censorship with the attendant danger to our military effort from careless publication or broadcast and, on the other hand, the only alternative of compulsory censorship which carried the potentiality of blacking-out the freedom of the press for the duration, Mr. Price chose to exercise his faith in the integrity of the personnel and organizations responsible for the communication of news to the public by Initiating an experiment in wartime censorship unique in its inception and execution, previously untried in any country. Throughout this period the total American war effort was shared in its individual parts by thousands and frequently by millions of people; ships, planes, troops, munitions and supplies were assembled and moved to war theaters in overwhelming force; submarines raided the enemy's far flung supply lines; German and Japanese submarines were hunted down and destroyed by a combination of tactics, weapons and devices that could similarly have been used against us; scientific laboratories developed and factories produced radar and the atomic bomb and they were put to devastating use; knowledge of these vast activities was in possession of press and radio media and was voluntarily withheld from publication or broadcast. By his distinctive and complete success in discharging his responsibilities as Director of Censorship, Mr. Price has demonstrated the strength of this country in its unity in time of stress and has contributed vitally to our hold upon one of the freedoms for which we were fighting and essential to our democratic way of life--the freedom of the press.
HARRY S. TRUMAN

 

V.I. Lenin, Communist--"When one makes a Revolution, one cannot mark time; one must always go forward - or go back. He who now talks about the "freedom of the press" goes backward, and halts our headlong course towards Socialism."

 

 

Joseph Stalin, Communist--"Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas."

 

 

In short, no, the point is not valid.

So, why does the world hate Americans?

Tue, 12/21/2010 - 21:59 | Link to Comment HL Shancken
HL Shancken's picture

To the largest degree the answer is efforts such as what is described by Ion Mahai Pacepa:

 

"History always repeats itself, and if you can live two lives, you have an even greater chance of seeing that repetition with your own eyes. During the last six years of my other life, as a Romanian intelligence general, the main task of the Soviet bloc espionage community was to transform Yasser Arafat's war against Israel and its main supporter, the United States, into an armed doctrine of the whole Islamic world.

 

America was our main enemy, and a billion adversaries could inflict far greater damage on it than could a mere one million. Islamic anti-Semitism ran deep. Our task was to convert its historical hatred of the Jews into a new hatred of the United States, by portraying this land of freedom as an "imperial Zionist country" financed by Jewish money and run by a rapacious "Council of the Elders of Zion," the Kremlin's epithet for the US Congress.

"According to KGB theorists, the Islamic world was a petri dish in which we could nurture a virulent strain of America-hate. Islamic cultures had a taste for nationalism, jingoism and victimology. Their illiterate, oppressed mobs could be whipped up to a fever pitch. Terrorism and violence against America would flow naturally from their religious fervor. We had only to keep repeating, over and over, that the United States was a "Zionist country" bankrolled by rich Jews.

 

Islam was obsessed with preventing the infidel's occupation of its territory, and it would be highly receptive to our dogma that American imperialism wanted to transform the rest of the world into a Jewish fiefdom.

"Before I left Romania for good, in 1978, the Soviet bloc intelligence community flooded the Islamic world with Arabic translations of an old Russian, forged, anti-Semitic tract entitled Protocols of the Elders of Zion, along with "documentary" materials, also in Arabic, "proving" that the United States was a Zionist country governed by Jewish money, whose aim was to extend its domination over the rest of the world.

 

We also infiltrated the Islamic world with thousands of Soviet bloc Islamic citizens recruited as intelligence agents and tasked to implant there a rabid, demented hatred for American Zionism. They were to portray everybody and everything in America as being subordinated to Jewish interests: the leaders, the government, the political parties, the most prominent personalities, and even American history. Most of these agents were religious servants, engineers, medical doctors or teachers, and they had excellent credibility."

 

 

The above is just one example of countless active measures carried out against the United States by the KGB in every country in the world.

 

KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov provides detailed insight into how these influence operations are carried out in interviews and presentations done in 1983-4. Following is a segment of the interview:

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlpODYhnPEo

 

 

Those who dismiss the relevance of the efforts of the Soviet Union to manipulate world opinion on the basis that the Soviet Union has long-since collapsed should read this by Jeff Nyquist:

This was another war that we had no business being in.  I tell the ww2 vets, this and all I get is a blank stare.  They even had a program on PBS a few years ago talking about how FDR had been warned ahead of the attack on Pearl Harbor and that he did nothing about it because it was his orders by the Zionist Rothschild interest to get us into war, at any cost. So he did. Over a thousand people died in Pearl Harbor for nothing. They moved the carriers because they wanted to use them for the war. The Battleships were lined up in dock like sitting ducks. Now I ask you, why would a very tiny country like Japan attack us?  They were provoked by FDR, that's why. They took the bate and so a lot of people died for nothing and bankers got even more wealthy. The ww2 Pearl Harbor vets that they showed this film to, sat there and scratched their heads and said. Well I guess he had to do that in order to get us into war.  Say what!!!!    See how they are?  They simply do not get it and never will and they don't want to get it either. It is simply too painful.  So  I  am sorry for your people being killed.  I lost some in that war too. But I will have to say, Israhole is being real nice to you about what he is trying to say.  Me,   I let the chips fall where they may.  Sir, if you only knew.

Nahh, my great uncles died fighting to free the jews in WWII.  One would think you'd show a little gratitude.

Isra, that is a hornet's nest you've stirred. People hate having their version of history torn away from them. Because the "truth", or even just the other side of the story shines a light, too bright on the shallowness and false premise-ness of one's belief system, so carefully cultivated over a lifetime.

There was this thing, but it was just a hollow-cast.

The holocaust is the holy grail of revisionist historical subjects. Just ask Norman Finkelstein. His parents died at Auschwitz but he dared to go against the grain on the whole holocaust issue and for this he was branded , a self hating jew, and summarily fired from his job at DePaul university. He now goes to school campuses to talk about Palestine and he is constantly bothered by the jewish sayanim network , who have been ordered to attempt to shut him up. He knows this full well. The Israelis talk about the Nazis all the time, yet they act worse than them with their actions against indigenous Palestinian Arabs on the West Bank and in Gaza.

this handbook is awesome!

In the FIRST PARAGRAPH, they frame the ENTIRE fucking issue as "jews as victims of racism" and hate!

this is just incredible shit.  Israelis HAVE murdered people, calling them murderers is a matter of perspective.  However, that particular point of view is unacceptable to them, as in the foreword, they sort of lament that all jews do not UNCONDITIONALLY back Israel.

To them it is all a matter of your goy stupidity in not recognizing that Israeli conduct is always virtuous.  This is some kind of defect in you that you do not see it their way.  You always have a "hidden agenda" or some kind of sinister motivation.  This group is ALWAYS THE VICTIM, never the perpetrator, by definition.

There really are two standards of behavior for this clan, yours and theirs; this is afterall what the Torah sets down as their law.  My experience with zionists reflects 100% this belief.

Just for the record Judaism isn't a race. It's  religion. They have twisted reality to try and make bias against a religious belief (which is a conscious choice) analogous with race  (which isn't a choice). 

The closest Jews can get to a "race" is if you believe they all descended from the same patriarch (Abraham) but that would make it a family wouldn't it?

 

As a religion though , The jewish religion is asking for trouble. I mean it takes a lot of balls to be calling yourselves the "chosen people of god". That's simply fighting words.

 

I mean let's get real. God likes my family better? No wonder everyone wants to kick your ass.

Plenty of jews claim to be a race.  Check out some of Menachim Begin's quotes.  In any case, the media, which they control, is full of lies.

 "I understand and was also just making a point, with facts.  Here's another fact, we always hear on the controlled media that Hitler just hated the "Chosen Ones" entirely unjustified. Yet, at least 15 years before anybody even knew his name, Germans were referring to their currency as "judefetzen". 

Look it up.  There are always at least 2 sides to a story, yet we only get pounded relentlessly with one."

 

Not sure I'm understanding here? Boil it down for me.  Thanks.

Thanks for speaking up. We have the numbers. I see the Megaphone software called all the Israel-firsters to junk my first comment.  They have a lot riding on the lies, you know?  :)

Really?  No holocaust?  I bet if I gave you a whole 'nother brain, it would get very lonely.

yeah....what would you do with thousands of dead bodies after typhoid, cholera, diptheria and starvation set in?  Interesting that NO documents were ever retrieved on the procedures to gas or burn live victims.  Interesting that chemical residues studies showed levels below detection, i.e., it wasn't there.  I'm sick of hearing about the holocaust.  Build'em in Israel, I don't care to look at them, especially in light of what the Israelis are doing to the people of Gaza.  Israelis certainly are not advocates of genocide prevention.  Don't even get me started on 9-11 and their role in security operations for the WTC and airports.

 I have been watching for the sayanim students.  I don't think they are here yet. You will; know it when they do arrive though. They always use the same tactics time and time again. Usually it is tons of total complete profanity and ad hominom attacks. Stay tuned. I have been watching for them to show up. They will.  I have seen them in action on more than one occasion.

I lost all but four members of my family to a Polish concentration camp.  Is that the attack you were looking for?

I am sorry for you loss. What do you want me to say?  The discussion was about megaphone. Do you know what that is?  If not, then google it. Read it for yourself. Nobody is making anything up around here. As Benjamin Friedman said one time, Facts are facts.
