Foreign Police given Jurisdiction in the US

An amendment to an executive order secretly signed by President Barack Obama on December 16, 2009 gives police officers from foreign governments police powers in the United States.

The President has provided foreign officers and international agencies exemptions from laws and regulations to which US cops must comply.

For example, foreign cops operating in the US will not be forced to comply with the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act.

 "This Obama executive order is a slap in the face of US cops -- who must adhere to laws and regulations including FOIA -- but also a slap in the face of American citizens who may be abused by these non-citizen cops from countries that don't recognize our constitutional protections," warns former New York City detective and Marine intelligence officer Sidney Franes.
 
Time for a flash back:
This amendment deals with foreign police on US soil, and when you read the article some changes made with regards to INTERPOL are mentioned.
But recall this one? Going back almost two years 
Canada and the U.S. have signed an agreement that paves the way for the militaries from either nation to send troops across each other's borders during an emergency, but some are questioning why the Harper government has kept silent on the deal.

So we already had troop agreements allowing foreign troops on US and Canadian soil.
Now there is a police agreement, signed by Obama Dec.16/09. Did Canada sign a similar agreement allowing foreign police on Canadian soil? I would think it quite likely given the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.

  1. hey penny, the other explanation i've read is that this EO was needed to facilitate investigations into the massive financial corruption, so it's a *good* thing see? supposedly interpol people are crawling all over this country arresting bankers. which i'll believe when i see the bankers in handcuffs on teevee. yup, still waiting....

  2. All this is as undemocratic as you can possibly get . . . and they don't even have to make many excuses for the behaviour. The people have been cowed and conditioned to accept it, and like an abused housewife, the self esteem and pride are so low that you'll gladly accept dog food as a sign of love.

    Steps closer to the NAU . . . and when the next false flag happens, we edge closer still because Canada will be seen as having weak security, we have to get up to US standards, and the US will demand it otherwise they make trade sanctions, etc etc.

    It's a good thing all the big corporations won't suffer when that false flag happens, however, as they are all C-TPAT compliant (look it up if you don't know).

    I sincerely hope everyone in Vancouver and Whistler has their camcorders at stand-by.

  4. A peasant, yeah, I heard the banker angle, what alot of baloney that is, eh?!

    slozo, you got it, NAU all the way...
    That is the reason I feel quite strongly about the potential for false flag at the olympics.

    I understand the US military and NORAD are on guard too.
    You know how well that all worked out on 9/11? ;)

    I am thinking with Harper out of the picture Obama can even step in and save the canadians..
    (Copenhagen redux)

    C-TPAT compliant, that is a new one.
    I will look that up.
