What do you think about the NDAA "Indefinite Detention Law?
Do you think the NDAA or as I refer to it "Indefinite Detention Law" or "Capture, Kill, or Interrogate Americans Law."
What do you think about this?
How can we allow our government to unilaterally decide without a trial or legal representation?
Lindsay Graham's comments about it.
Brief description about it here.
What do you think about this all?

Prediction: You're going to get five people pointing out that the NDAA is something that is passed every year, even though it's painfully obvious you're talking about section 1021, 1022, 1031, and 1032 of the 2012 NDAA. Which is NOT something that gets brought up every year.
This is in spite of this prediction, which they won't read before replying to you.
To those people, this is what he's talking about, check my sources for more info.
-Obama rejected a portion of the bill that would have explicitly forbid imprisoning people forever without trial
-Obama and McCain both argued that the new bill would apply to U.S. citizens, despite an amendment by Senator Feinstein that passed 99 to 1 saying it does not.
-The bill says that anyone acting "belligerent" can be imprisoned until the war on terror is over without trial in a Guantanamo style camp
-According to the ACLU, "the breadth of the NDAA’s detention authority violates international law because it is not limited to people captured in the context of an actual armed conflict as required by the laws of war."
-Colorado senator Udall proposed a bill that would explicitly forbit the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens that was defeated 38-60.
-These new provisions mean that the authority of the UAMF extends the battlefield of the war on terror to the U.S. and overrides Posse Comitatus (in English, the army can be used as police now).Source(s): http://www.aclu.org/national-security/senate-poise... http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/dec/15/americ... http://www.salon.com/2011/12/15/obama_to_sign_inde...

The information on why the veto turned into a signing clause is under investigation. It also goes to the courts.
One big government of NWO Money.
Congress is subject to the law as well. They revised the bill to it's current form.
The rest is all speculation.
We have to get the whole story and be ready

Obama demanded language that SPECIFICALLY PREVENTED the law being used on US citizens. Republicans wanted YOU to be tried in GITMO in military prisons if you were engaged in any terror-like activity. NDAA was written BY REPUBLICANS and had exactly the nightmare scenario language in it you are talking about, until Obama revised it.

I agree with the ACLU...
“President Obama's action today is a blight on his legacy because he will forever be known as the president who signed indefinite detention without charge or trial into law,” said Anthony D. Romero, ACLU executive director. “The statute is particularly dangerous because it has no temporal or geographic limitations, and can be used by this and future presidents to militarily detain people captured far from any battlefield. The ACLU will fight worldwide detention authority wherever we can, be it in court, in Congress, or internationally.”

How long did Bush and Cheney keep prisoners in GITMO without trials or accusations?
Do you even care?
If not - why not? I think you really need to ask yourself this question before pretending you have any legitimate opinions about anything.Source(s): Obama TRIED to close GITMO, and Republicans and Blue Dogs PASSED A BILL preventing him from doing so! Why doesn't your fake news network tell you these things? Don't you ever ask yourself these questions? Ever?

Why did the Republican House write it and pass it wit a veto proof majority?
- 9 years ago
What bothers me the most is that no proof is necessary. "Suspicion" is all that is required to take someone away forever without trial or recourse. Unthinkable.

We have officially become a military state. American citizens can be tortured, held, or killed without trial.

I think Obama declared himself King.
