Their function is to fight international crime and terrorism, and they have no authority to interfere in our internal business.

If you didn't know, Interpol helps US find and capture terrorists, and Reagan gave them immunity in order to fight crime, which at his time happened to be the cocaine wars in latin America and United States. Hundreds of people were getting murdered in South Florida alone, and thousands were getting addicted to drugs. Today we fight terrorists, and all of a sudden the right wing (of all people) start critisizing and fighting every attempt to capture terrorists. There is no end to their hypocricy as long as they get to smear their political opponents.
You're exactly right. The people who hate Obama are jumping on any little thing they can and twisting to suit their fear mongering agenda. Their agenda is doing great harm to this country! INTERPOL has been operating around the world for decades and they haven't turned any country into a "police state" yet. That is ridiculous.
