Defense Department Asking Congress For Legislation To 'Fight Crime' Globally

Defense Department seeks new authorities for counterterrorism fight

"Most of the authorities that we have right now are narrowly construed to counterterrorism ... [but] I think for some countries we may need a little bit more flexibility to go in there," Michael Sheehan, assistant secretary of defense for special operations and low-intensity conflict, told lawmakers on Tuesday.

"If we have a broader range of authorities, we can respond with more agility to each country with a different set of programs," Sheehan said. "I think that's the direction we're thinking."

Subcommittee chairwoman Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) and subpanel member Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) pressed Sheehan on what exactly DoD was looking for, in terms of legislative authorities.

While not going into too much detail, Sheehan said the lines between terrorism and crime have become increasingly blurry and current U.S. statutes to address either have not kept up.

"Some of these threats are not pure terrorism," Sheehan explained. DoD needs to be able to go after groups that straddle the line between terrorism and organized crime.

"We are looking for some legislative authority ... that might be able to give us some broader authorities, legislative authorities and multiyear funding for some of the types of activities that I'd like to do in terms of building coalitions to take on these complex threats," Sheehan said.

DoD will hand over a slate of potential legislative options being drafted by Sheehan's office to lawmakers "in the weeks and months ahead," he added.

This post is an update on: US Government Explains "Why it Is Not Unlawful" To Arbitrarily Kill "Terrorists" - Including Americans 3-6-12 "Terrorists - the "stateless enemy". The invisible foe of freedom worldwide. Now the justification for the NWO's assuming of godlike powers - answerable to none - of life and death" [see post]

Godlike powers of life and death cannot really be "godlike" if there are any "narrowly construed" restrictions upon them whatsoever - like for instance requiring a designation of "terrorist" before an elimination can be carried out...so now the NWO wants to grant itself "more flexibility" and "a broader range of authorities" that would not be restricted by any labeling requirements like 'terrorist', but would apply in any number of possible applications, all falling neatly into the generically named 'crime' category.

Roaming at will para-military forces with global jurisdiction and unlimited power to enforce a global dictatorship is what this amounts to. The implications are vast, none of them good. Be absolutely aware. Rev. 18:4
