The White House

Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release
September 10, 2010
Notice from the President on the Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to Certain Terrorist Attacks

NOTICE

-------

CONTINUATION OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT TO CERTAIN TERRORIST ATTACKS

Consistent with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1622(d), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency previously declared on September 14, 2001, in Proclamation 7463, with respect to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the continuing and immediate threat of further attacks on the United States.

Because the terrorist threat continues, the national emergency declared on September 14, 2001, and the powers and authorities adopted to deal with that emergency must continue in effect beyond September 14, 2010. Therefore, I am continuing in effect for an additional year the national emergency that was declared on September 14, 2001, with respect to the terrorist threat.
This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.

BARACK OBAMA

THE WHITE HOUSE,
September 10, 2010.

this is one reason 9/11 is still important

there are many others of course- but since 9/11, the US govt has been kept the US under a continual state of emergency- for NINE years- based on events for which the public has been fed a mix of half-truths and outright falsehoods, and for which no one with responsibility was ever held to account- rather, many people who 'failed' were promoted/given raises, or given increased authority and budgets.

See Peter Dale Scott's articles on this:

write to your Representative and ask them why Congress has never met to discuss whether or not the state of emergency should be continued- mine said that legal requirement was overidden by the authorization for use of force, though it does not expressly do that- but this is the law which it is claimed made the entire world a battlefield, and was used to legitimize the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq.

EDIT: I just realized I hadn't uploaded or posted Frank Wolf's subsequent response at scribd or here, where he reports on the response his staff r'cd from the CRS regarding the above:
