Barack Hussein Obama and Mohamed Morsi give their military the authority to arrest civilians.

First we have Barack Hussein Obama insisting on adding provisions to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to allow the U.S. military to arrest and detain American citizens and hold them without trial, now we read that Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has issued a decree giving his military the same rights. Makes you wonder if these two guys are exchanging notes on how to set up a dictatorship. This story came from Jihad Watch.

"BREAKING: Egypt army granted right to arrest civilians,"

by Joseph Mayton for Bikya News, January 28 (thanks to C. Cantoni):
CAIRO: The Egyptian government gave the armed forces the authority to arrest civilians on Monday, local media have reported a source from the cabinet as saying.

It comes as violence continues on Cairo’s Nile River corniche between police and protesters near Tahrir Square.

The move to grant the military the ability to arrest civilians is not likely to go over well with activists, especially after thousands of Egyptians were tried in military courts following the removal of Hosni Mubarak from power in February 2012 and the military rule of the country that lasted until President Mohamed Morsi was sworn into power in June last year.

The latest violence follows the announcement of a state of emergency by President Mohamed Morsi in all Suez Canal cities for 30 days after days of violence has left over 45 people dead in Port Said, Suez and Ismaileya.

“As you all know, I have previously affirmed I am against any exceptional measures but I also affirmed I will take action. And here I am taking action, to stop the bloodshed and maintain security, against rioters and law breakers,” Morsi stated, addressing the nation in a televised speech.

Yada, yada, yada, these two Muslim Brotherhood candidates could be twins. They each tell the same lies. Meanwhile, the Egyptians are rioting in the streets over the government takeover in their country while the sheep here in America are napping in the meadows, lulled to sleep by their complacent news media.
