ALERT!! NDAA / Indefinite Detention Vote in The Senate 11/29

Indefinite detention amendment to be voted on 11/29

The Senate will debate and possibly vote on Thursday, 11/29, on Senator Feinstein's amendment that would prohibit indefinite detention of US citizens and permanent lawful residents.

Senators Make Bid To End Indefinite Detention In NDAA

 

Michael McAuliff | Huffington Post

WASHINGTON -- A bipartisan group of senators made a bid Wednesday to end the indefinite military detention of Americans in the United States.

Declaring that a provision of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 put the country on a path to repeat the shame of World War II's internment camps, they argued the offending language should be stricken in this year's defense bill.

The authority to detain anyone on suspicions that they backed Al Qaeda was codified in law for the first time in the NDAA last winter, although the two most recent White House administrations have asserted since 2001 that the military has always had that authority, stemming from Congress' Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) passed after the 9/11 attacks.

President Barack Obama opposed the measure, but ultimately signed it after an amendment to the act muddied the issue enough to make it debatable in courts. Obama pledged to never use the authority.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who helped write that amendment, declared Wednesday that it is not good enough, and recalled seeing Japanese Americans jailed in horse stalls at a racetrack when she was a girl.

Actually, The Newest Version Of NDAA Makes It EASIER To Detain Citi...

Today we offer another interpretation from Bruce Afran, a lawyer for the group of journalists and activists suing the government over the 2012 NDAA.

Afran explained that the new provision gives U.S. citizens a right to go to civilian (i.e. Article III) court based on "any [applicable] constitutional rights," but since there are are no rules in place to exercise this right, detained U.S. citizens currently have no way to gain access to lawyers, family or the court itself once they are detained within the military.

"The biggest thing about the [2012] NDAA was that you weren't getting a trial ... Nothing in here says that you'll make it to an Article III court so it literally does nothing," Dan Johnson, founder of People Against the NDAA, told BI. "It's a bunch of words, basically,"

Afran noted that the newest version actually goes further than the NDAA that's now in effect.

"The new statute actually states that persons lawfully in the U.S. can be detained under the Authorization for the Use of Military Force [AUMF]. The original (the statute we are fighting in court) never went that far," Afran said. "Therefore, under the guise of supposedly adding protection to Americans, the new statute actually expands the AUMF to civilians in the U.S."

  It is common knowledge amongst  observers of the NATO invasion of North Africa that Hillary has gone so far as to admit that the U.S. is using 'Al Qaeda' as a front military unit to attack and occupy. They have gone so far as to have the 'Al Qaeda flag flying as the new flag of Libya. Photographes of 'Al Qaeda' units marching in formation at training bases in Israel and Serbo-Croatia are available for all to see over the net.

  Feinstein and company are full of cat benuche. Candidates for the waste basket.
