It's hard to argue that the CIA/FBI can do something in other countries that other police forces can't do in America?
in this latest "amended" Executive Order.
As crafted by Regan EXECUTIVE ORDER 12425 extended certain diplomatic immunities to INTERPOL as an "International Organization." It also specifically DENIED some immunities such as immunity from search of properties and archives and immunities from various taxes.
Along comes Obama and with a stroke of the pen INTERPOL now has immunities that place their members ABOVE AND BEYOND our own law enforcement agencies and that would allow their agents to arrest, retain, and remove from this country WITHOUT bothering with extradition American Citizens.

THE WHITE HOUSE,
June 16, 1983.
Clinton in EO 12971 of September 15, 1995 had already amended it to delete the words ??the portions of Section 2(d) and?? and the words ??relating to customs duties and federal internal-revenue importation taxes??. (this amendment was not earth shaking nor detrimental to American Sovereignty - unlike the new amendment)
Wither Sovereignty -- Executive Order Amended to Immunize INTERPOL In America - Is The ICC Next?
Bolded text is QUOTED,
What price Freedom and American Sovereignty? Is this the PROTECTION of the Constitution an oath of office demands?
