An Abuse Of Power By The Administration
Remember last week when President Obama said he wouldn’t be "scrambling the jets" to get (at) NSA whistle blower Edward Snowden, whom he derisively and dismissively referred to as some "hacker." Well, what he didn’t tell you is he would be scrambling other nations’ jets to get Snowden.
The Obama administration created an embarrassing international incident that is being carried all over the world for brazenly violating U.N. law, as the government summarily ordered allies to divert the plane of Bolivian President, Evo Morales, based on false accusations that Snowden was aboard the plane.
This is a follow up to the Judiciary Report article "American NSA Whistleblower Comes Forward From Hong Kong (Photo)" regarding Edward Snowden's NSA leak confirming claims I'd made online for several years about the agency illegally spying on people. Today, the administration dragged France, Italy, Portugal and Austria into the fiasco, only for the latter to search the plane and find no Snowden.
The Bolivian government is rightly accusing Obama of having "kidnapped" their head of state. If that were me I’d have been angrier than a rasta at a pork festival (side bar: rastas hate the pork, don’t even say the word bacon around them LOL).
Just imagine if someone had diverted a plane with Obama on it, falsely stating he was hiding a foreign fugitive on board, as was done regarding Morales. You can’t treat people like that. Obama, "Do unto others as you would have done unto you" because you would be outraged if someone had pulled that stunt on you. You basically crapped on Bolivia’s sovereignty in an unnecessary faux pas. Even if Snowden had been onboard this move would not have been justified.
This is one of the points the Judiciary Report keeps trying to emphasize regarding one of the most negative traits of the Obama administration. The extreme lengths the administration goes to in bids at getting at people.
Men like Eric Holder (DOJ) and Robert Mueller (FBI) abusing the law to obsessively pursue people, wasting a fortune in tax payer money to settle personal vendettas and against fellow citizens (see: New Scandal Erupts Regarding The FBI And Justice Department Monitoring Calls Of AP Reporters Confirming Previous Site Claims and IRS Says Sorry For Targeting Conservatives As Obama Denies All Knowledge Of Misconduct).
Bolivia angered by search of president's plane, no sign of Snowden
Wed Jul 3, 2013 6:49am EDT - (Reuters) - Bolivia accused Austria of an act of aggression by searching President Evo Morales' plane on Wednesday and blamed Washington for its forced landing in Vienna over suspicions that former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden was on board.
Morales' plane was stranded at Vienna airport for several hours after Portugal and France abruptly canceled air permits for it to fly through their airspace, but eventually resumed its flight home form an energy meeting in Moscow. Austria found no sign of Snowden on board. He is believed to still be in the transit area of a Moscow airport, where he has been trying since June 23 to find a country that will protect him from prosecution in the United States on espionage charges.
The diversion and search of Morales' plane were the latest turns in the 30-year-old Snowden's bid to escape the clutches of the United States since he divulged details of a secret U.S. government surveillance program, Prism. Bolivian Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca blamed the forced stopover in Vienna on "unfounded suspicions that Mr Snowden was on the plane".
"We don't know who invented this lie," Choquehuanca said in La Paz. "We want to express our displeasure because this has put the president's life at risk." Bolivia's ambassador to the United Nations told reporters in Geneva that Austria's decision to search the plane was an act of aggression and a violation of international law...
