Loving Freedom Enough to Defy the NDAA :: 12/25/2011

You might assume that revolution brews here in the "Homeland," given Our Rulers' paranoia: both the House and Senate have passed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA) ; the bill requires only Obummer's signature by December 26 to destroy the venerable, infinitely precious right of habeas corpus. Thereafter, the president may declare American citizens "terrorists" with no evidence whatsoever and imprison them indefinitely.

You know these are interesting times when Glenn Beck, Dianne Feinstein, Rand Paul and the ACLU all stand on the same side of an issue. The issue in question is Subtitle D of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), particularly Sections 1031-1033, being discussed by the House and Senate as I write and headed to the president's desk any day now. These hastily added, under-the-radar provisions, co-sponsored by Senators John McCain and Carl Levin, would allow for the indefinite military detention of any person alleged to be a member of Al Qaeda, the Taliban or "associated forces." The provisions also apply to any person who supports or aids "belligerent" acts against the United States, whether the person is apprehended beyond our borders or on domestic soil.
