Should President Obama (alongside Lindsay Graham and John McCain) be wearing an orange jumpsuit?
Welcome to the beautiful and surreal reality of life under American corporatism, under a Congress that churns out thousands ¬†and thousands of pages of (often contradictory) legislation a year.
If providing material assistance to al-Qaeda is illegal under the National Defence Authorization Act (2012), and Obama and Congress are sending¬†$25 million of aid¬†to¬†al-Qaeda-affiliated Syrian opposition, aren‚Äôt Congress and President Obama violating their own law? Should Obama (or at least the Justice Department) not be using ‚Äúall necessary and appropriate force‚ÄĚ including ‚Äúthe power to indefinitely detain‚ÄĚ to prevent Obama and Congress from assisting al-Qaeda? Did anyone in Congress or the Obama administration even bother to read the law that they were signing? Do Federal laws no longer apply to lawmakers?
