Alert! New Bush Executive Order Criminalizes Antiwar Efforts Further

New Executive Order provides President with authority to confiscate assets of whoever opposes U.S. war in Iraq.

On July 17, Bush issued a new Executive Order giving the government power to seize & confiscate the assets of U.S. citizens who oppose the war effort in Iraq. The Executive Order is titled “Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq” and it allows the Department of Defense to interfere in financial affairs and tell the Treasury to “block the property” and/or confiscate/freeze the assets of people and organizations opposing the war in Iraq.

Now if this isn't another swift move towards totalitarianism then I don't know what is. This is very dangerous to U.S. citizens and our freedom of speech. What should bother us more is the fact that not many people even know about this. These are the kinds of policies and orders passed under the table and purposely kept in the dark and away from any kind of popular media networks. Link [The White House]
