Just a quick question about Israeli citizenship

How many other countries are allowed dual
citizenship in the US, including military service
in these countries?

Please, let us contact

Senator Bennet's office to ask him not
to sign on to the Corker bill. He is one of the
few Dems willing to do so, and this could be
the vote to override any POTUS veto.

He got into the Senate due to Obama's help,
perhaps it helps to remind him of that.

A totally different question regarding HRC's e-mails

Now she is a private citizen. Does she have to go to
that stupid committee if she gets a supena(?) from
it to appear?
Can she just hire a lawyer to represent her?

I realize that most of us would have to go, but
is her case so special that she could evade it?

What are the rules for a reasonable refusal? I think
that this is exactly what is planned, and wonder
about the problems coming possibly with it.

Question about the true powers of our POTUS

and I don't even mean our present one.

Considering the power of the MIC, NSA, CIA, and even the FBI
do you really believe that our presidents still have the power
to control even one of those agencies?

Possibly the FBI, although I doubt it. All of these agencies
seem to control "any possible problems" via internal
investigations, i.e. they actually are able to protect themselves
to the fullest without any serious public disclosure.

I don't believe that Hoover was the only one to use his power
during that rather more simple time (regarding tech advances).

I just wonder how many people feel the same kind of worry
as I do. BTW the Congressional oversight did not seem to
work either, considering that we were only allowed to get a
few pages of the CIA report concerning torture.
