This didn’t even make a splash in this country. I found the story on the British Guardian website. Seems that Bush signed an executive order giving the Secretary of the Treasury the authority to seize property and assets of anyone the Administration determines to be aiding terrorists.

President Bush unveiled an executive order that allows the administration to block bank accounts and any other financial assets that might be found in this country belonging to people, companies or groups that the United States deems are working to threaten stability in Iraq.

This goes along with the idea that they can declare you an enemy combatant, and strip you of your Constitutional Rights as well. Yep, after a mere 230 years, portions of the Constitution (or the whole thing I suppose) can just be suspended by Executive Order of King George. Of course Whitehouse Spokesman Tony Snow promised it would only be used against terrorists.

When will we put a stop to the madness? When will Americans demand that their nation be returned?
