Obama now uses Bush law he wanted to repeal
Obama must be the biggest hypocrite ever.
Check it out:
Senior al-Qaida leader Abu Anas al-Libi was captured by U.S. Special Forces earlier this week under the authorization of a Bush-era military law that President Obama recently criticized and vowed to repeal.
Amid Libyan concerns about the raid, Secretary of State John Kerry justified al-Libi’s abduction in Tripoli as a fair use of the Authorization for Use of Military Force, or AUMF.
Kerry stated al-Libi’s capture was a “legal and and appropriate target for the U.S. military under the Authorization of the Use of Military Force passed in September 2001.”
The AUMF doctrine was signed into law by President Bush immediately following the 9/11 attacks.
AUMF grants the president authority to use all “necessary and appropriate force” against those determined to have “planned, authorized, committed or aided” the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, or who harbored al-Qaida groups.
