What's the problem?! As long as they call them a terrorist, they can shoot any American they want!

That means, van der Galien wrote today, “this foreign law enforcement
organization can operate free of an important safeguard against government and abuse.”
Obama grants foreign agents the same freedom from review that he has. Most everyone here agrees, it's a good way to fight terrorists.

Depends on who you're defining as a "terrorist".

It was in the news in 2009, when it was done. Even with Americans' notorious short term attention, I kinda understand it not being in the news today.
