Not sure why you are asking me the two rhetorical question at the end of paragraph one.
I was answering your implied assertion that Obama wasn’t worse on civil and human rights “than Reagan, Clinton, or BushCo”, and gave a good argument for it including having pushed for and and signed the NDAA provision that allows for the first time indefinite detention of US citizens by the US military on US soil, and the transport of such person out of country.
Sorry, that didn’t happen under either Bush, Clinton, or Reagan. It is clearly a ratcheting UP of executive power.
Am I arguing that the other Presidents in question didn’t do their share of violating “civil and human rights”?
Of course not. I gave a specific example where Obama actually was 100% worse than those other Presidents.
I also cited the FACT that Obama has worked hard via prosecution of whistleblowers (where he is clearly the worst) and otherwise, to protect the Bush Administration from criminal prosecution or even investigation into war crimes, including torture. Effectively, given this fact, Obama is even worse on this count because he effectively conspired in the those violations of human rights, by intentionally ensuring those crimes would go unpunished.
Equating the NDAA with Bush’s renditions and kidnappings related to the aftermath of the 9/11 false flag event are apples and oranges. Obama stepped in, and pretended to end the renditions, but the actual law states otherwise that renditions can be ongoing. What the NDAA does is uniquely Obama’s doing, and it is a worse act than his predecessors regarding the change in law that the NDAA affects.
Anyway, not trying to start a contentious argument, but rather trying to clarify the point I was making.
Of course, the rest of the Presidents engaged in criminal acts. The Obama Administration has engaged in those same criminal acts and piled on a bunch of other things that are actually even more insidious because they amount to codifying torture by the CIA and the Pentagon, codifying the US Military to detain US citizens, codifying the mass surveillance of US citizens, and the list of unique Obama acts piling on is long.
THAT is my point.
