A Short Review of Some of Bush's Executive Orders
Since 9/11 many of our “rights” were crushed under the guise of "national insecurity." The major event of 9/11 supposedly justified George Bush's Executive Orders - and here are some of them listed below. Note that some of these have been revoked. And we hope that President Obama revokes them all:
“Executive Order 10990 Allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and can control the highways and the seaports.
Executive Order 10995 Allows the government to seize and control all communications media (Telecommunications, Internet, Radio & TV, etc)
