The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012 is a controversial bill that has been passed by both houses of Congress separately,
and a final version approved by the Senate on December 15, 2011. Though the White House and Senate sponsors maintain that the
Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists (AUMF) already grants presidential authority for indefinite detention, the Act
legislatively codifies the President's authority to indefinitely detain terrorism suspects, including American citizens, without trial as defined
in Title X, Subtitle D, SEC 1031(a-e) of the bill. Because those who may be held indefinitely include U.S. citizens arrested on American soil, and
because that detention may be by the military, the Act has received critical attention by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and media
passed both houses and the senate, and soon the president. make no mistake ppl, EVRYONE is against us, both parties and our elected leaders.
i guess this things been passed every year for 48 years now, but this time indefinite detention is being added.
