Judge blocks indefinite military detention provision

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A judge on Wednesday blocked enforcement of a recently enacted law's provision that authorizes indefinite military detention for those deemed to have "substantially supported" al Qaeda, the Taliban or "associated forces."

District Judge Katherine Forrest in Manhattan ruled in favor of a group of civilian activists and journalists who said they feared being detained under a section of the law, which was signed by President Barack Obama in December 2011.

Different sources have conflicting info as to whether this is a temporary ruling. But one thing is for sure, the Judge agreed with Activists/Journalists such as Chris Hedges that the statute failed to pass Constitutional muster.

One victory down, millions more to go...don't get lulled by it, we have a long way to go.
Yay! for this one.
