If Not Tragic, It Would Be Funny

Does this mean that imprisonment is bad, but murder is good?  No, it means that BO is lying through his teeth once again.

If you haven’t heard, Obama’s New Year’s gift to America was signing the NDAA indefinite detention bill into law. He tried to quell outrage by saying he was only signing it with “serious reservations.”

“I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists,” … “My administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens. Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a nation.”

Reading his signing statement, I can’t help but laugh at him saying he won’t use these powers against American citizens, he just murdered American citizen Anwar al-Awlaki and his 16-yr-old American son two months ago.

Also:

Obama issued a “signing statement” with the bill, which – at first blush – appears to say he won’t indefinitely detain Americans. Specifically, Obama wrote:

My administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens … Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a nation.

But a closer reading shows that the signing statement is just smoke and mirrors.

Specifically, it was Obama – not Congress – who originally requested that an exception for American citizens be removed from the bill. As such, his professed reluctance is wholly disingenuous.
