And Everyone's OK With This?

Executive order grants INTERPOL diplomatic immunity among others....

Well, not exactly diplomatic immunity, but close. Still, this seems to be granting an international police force too much authority on American soil.

I'm not feeling real kosher about this, but I'll need to study on it some more:
Obama administration officials say this new executive order doesn't allow INTERPOL to do any more than they were allowed to do once Reagan recognized them as a public international organization. Though clearly the Executive Order does prohibit US law enforcement from searching and seizing INTERPOL records, officials say, those provisions can be waived by the president if need be.
