Did you know that we've been under a "National Emergency" for eight years and that Obama has renewed it?

From here

"On Thursday night, the president sent to Congress an official notification of the continuation of the national emergency that was declared after the attacks in 2001. Federal law requires termination of a national emergency before the anniversary of its declaration, unless it is continued. Obama has posted in the Federal Register a declaration that the emergency declared after the attacks, will remain in effect for another year.

"The terrorist threat that led to the declaration on September 14, 2001, of a national emergency continues," the president's letter to Congress states. "For this reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue in effect after September 14, 2009, the national emergency with respect to the terrorist threat.""
