Interpol’s Noble: Gingrich, Bloggers Wrong About Obama Order


Interpol chief Ronald Noble complains about “bloggers up in arms over a recent executive order” by President Obama that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s incorrectly says allows international police to operate in the United States unfettered by U.S. law. Says Noble, writing for Newsweek: “An executive order cannot legally authorize an unconstitutional act, and this one doesn’t even come close.”

Noble cites a National Rifle Association statement supporting his view. Noble says “some bloggers have been unrelenting and inflammatory, ignoring both the facts and the law. Instead of making sure that Americans are focusing on Al Qaeda and terrorists, some bloggers appear to be using Interpol for another political attack against President Obama, who has never even spoken of Interpol.”
