The globalist minions, known in part as the Obama administration, do not want the public reading about the NDAA, Executive Order 13603 (EO) and the CIA’s funding of ISIS.

WhiteheadMay 26, 2015 “The ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control.” —William Binney, NSA whistleblower We now have a fourth branch of government.
