Obama gives terror suspects access to frozen assets

Please do not misconstrue the title of this post. I'm not referring to the frozen assets currently being consumed by the President in Hawaii...













Obama is certainly entitled to treat the terrorists to ice shaves, if he so desires.

But these frozen assets are of a different nature:
Caving in to the demands of liberal civil rights groups, the Obama Administration has quietly amended a counterterrorism sanction so that accused terrorists can pay for their defense with assets frozen by the U.S. government.

The exemption to the government’s Global Terrorism Sanctions was made official this week by the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control... The office operates under presidential national emergency powers...

Among its duties is to freeze the assets of individuals or groups engaged in terrorist activities... That means that individuals charged with terrorism can’t access money to pay for attorneys, something that has long bothered the left. This week the Treasury Department gave in, making it possible for terrorism suspects whose assets have been frozen by Uncle Sam to use the money to pay for legal representation....

Jim Kouri adds: This latest instance of the Obama Administration assisting terrorists is not a surprise to many working in law enforcement or the intelligence community. For example, the issue of Attorney General Erich Holder’s past legal papers came up after some Republicans asked why lawyers who had previously done legal work for terror detainees now had jobs in the Justice Department, something President Barack Obama successfully avoided discussing...
