    Obama administration backs bill authorizing indefinite military detention of US citizens

    By Joseph Kishore

    Global Research, December 15, 2011

    World Socialist Web Site



    The Obama administration declared Wednesday afternoon that it was abandoning its nominal threat to veto a military authorization bill that explicitly authorizes the indefinite military detention of anyone the federal government declares to be a terrorist or supporter, including US citizens.
    The final passage of the bill is now virtually assured by the end of the week. It marks a new stage in the collapse of the most basic democratic rights in the United States and the erection of the framework of a military-police state.
    From the beginning, the administration has supported all fundamental components of the bill, while criticizing it largely from the standpoint of defending executive power. In a statement, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said that a few cosmetic changes this week ensured that it “does not challenge the president’s ability to collect intelligence, incapacitate terrorists and protect the American people.”
    A few hours later, the House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly in favor of the legislation, 286-136, with support from both big business parties. Democrats split 93-93 on the bill, while Republicans voted for it by a margin of 193-43.

    This is not entirely true what so ever. When the bill was drafted it did not have anything in it about "American Citizens." It was Obama who sent the bill back because it was "He that wanted the inclusion of American Citizens" in the bill. I advise everyone to listen to the WBAI 99.5 fm show that is listed as "Wednesday Dec. 14th, 12:01 program with the title; "Gary Null - The Natural Living Show.

    When you go to the page, look at the top and find the section that reads; "programs". Hit that spot and a drop down menu will show. hit the spot that reads; "archives" and it will open up the menu. Then go down and find Wednesdays shows.

    WOW PEOPLE BETTER learn who this nogrow really is...after all ive learned about him and the history of bi-racial people as it pertains to Africans, what I am most shocked about is the fact that he is actually married to a black darkskinned woman. He actually thinks that when his term is over the devils will still love and have use for him. Brother Dr.Johnson made an excellent prediction which is likely to come true..."black people will catch more hell after Obama than ever before, because they didnt hold him accountable" Each development in his presidency grows lighter and more sinister than the one before...it never ceases to amaze me how much people dont pay attention.

    Under the NDAA:

    • You may be arrested and indefinitely detained merely for being "suspected" of any involvement whatsoever with "terrorism" -- a term that can be twisted to mean almost anything, including protesting against animal testing laboratories or chaining yourself to a tree as an environmental protester.

    • You no longer have a right to legal representation.

    • You can be held for life without ever being charged for any crime.

    • You no longer have a right to a trial by a jury of your peers.

    • You can be murdered by the government -- legally! -- without ever being charged with a crime.

    • The government does not have to present ANY evidence against you to take all these actions. The government merely has to say that you are "suspected" of being involved in "terrorism." Such suspicion, of course, could be dreamed up against anyone! Political opponents, Free Speech proponents, protesters, dissenters... anyone at all.

    Should I take comfort that all these evil actions come from a Democrat?
    Is a knife in the back less painful when it was placed there by Obama?
    It was surely easier for him to stab you than it would have been for someone you hadn't trusted.

    Where is everybody, while all this nonsense is happening? Where are the constitutional lawyers, when we really need them? Where are all the other activists, who claim to believe in freedom and the rule of law, when the stakes are really high? How can millions of us, of all races, let a few hundred legislators, that we put in power walk all over us and kick us around? Are we all that powerless? Is everybody asleep? Where do we draw the line?

    Where are they? they have been on the internet for the last 2 months by the thousands warning us about this via plausable conjecture, long before the fact of McCain's first draft, while folks laughed it off as a conspiracy theory
