Obama Declares Another National Emergency When None Exists - by Stephen Lendman


Well, not exactly. In fact, he renewed, for the second, time, the Bush administration's 9/11 one, a White House press release saying:

"Letter from the President on the Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to Certain Terrorist Attack"


"Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act, 50 USC 1622(d), provides for the automatic termination of a national emergency unless, prior to the anniversary date of its declaration, the President publishes in the Federal Register and transmits to the Congress a notice stating that the emergency is to continue in effect beyond the anniversary date. Consistent with this provision, I have sent to the Federal Register the enclosed notice, stating that the emergency declared with respect to the terrorist attacks on the United States of September 11, 2001, is to continue in effect for an additional year."

"The terrorist threat that led to the declaration on September 14, 2001, of a national emergency continues. For this reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue (it) in effect after September 14, 2010, the national emergency with respect to the terrorist threat."


In fact, no threat existed nine years ago or today. Declaring one, however, lets Washington maraud globally and at home, committing state terror. It's the only kind that matters, given America's destructive power and intent to wage it as part of the nation's permanent war agenda.
