And libs thought the Patriot Act was an infringement on one's privacy!
In 1983 President Reagan extended to Interpol the privileges and immunities afforded foreign diplomats. On December 17, 2009 Obama signed an "updated" version REMOVING key language of this order, namely:
"Property and assets of international organizations, wherever located and by whomsoever held, shall be immune from search, unless such immunity be expressly waived, and from confiscation. The archives of international organizations shall be inviolable."
This means Interpol records are beyond US citizens’ Freedom of Information Act requests and from American legal or investigative discovery.
Interpol officers would have diplomatic immunity for any lawbreaking conducted in the US at a time when Interpol nations (like Italy) have attempted to try American intelligence agents for their work in the war on terror.
What do you think?
