Do as we say, not as we do...

The Federal government has long ignored the laws it imposes on everyone else.  But this latest example should cause every American to question everything we've been told for the last dozen years.
If providing material assistance to al-Qaeda is illegal under the National Defence Authorization Act (2012), and Obama and Congress are sending $25 million of aid to al-Qaeda-affiliated Syrian opposition, aren’t Congress and President Obama violating their own law? Should Obama (or at least the Justice Department) not be using “all necessary and appropriate force” including “the power to indefinitely detain” to prevent Obama and Congress from assisting al-Qaeda? Did anyone in Congress or the Obama administration even bother to read the law that they were signing? Do Federal laws no longer apply to lawmakers?

The actions of the US government during the various "Arab spring" movements seem almost calculated to result in a quasi-Caliphate across north Africa.  Now this.  I think it's long past high time we demand our leaders stop playing God around the world.  They're not good at it, and the job's already taken...
