This just came in regarding the un-American NDAA: “The Senate voted Tuesday to keep a controversial provision to let the military detain terrorism suspects on U.S. soil and hold them indefinitely without trial — prompting White House officials to reissue a veto threat. The measure, part of the massive National Defense Authorization Act, was also opposed by civil libertarians on the left and right. But 16 Democrats and an independent joined with Republicans to defeat an amendment by Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) that would have killed the provision, voting it down with 61 against, and 37 for it.”
Do yourselves a favor & take down the name of every single senator that voted in favor of it. With the pending passing of the bill, Section 1031 of S. 1253 would be one of those sections enacted, meaning it now be the first time in more than 60 years that our so-called representatives in Washington would openly allow indefinite detention of American citizens with no charges or trial without Congressional authorization. The loopholes under this section makes exploitation all but an absolute certainty, despite the ACLU’s claims that it would not apply to you or I.
Huffington Post cleverly ignores the worst sections of the text - those involving our own citizens, aside from “terrorist” detainees - but lists all those that voted. Pressure the White House to veto this un-American bill.
