Guantánamo for US citizens?
The National Defense Authorization Act passed by the Senate this week could allow the US military to detain American citizens indefinitely.
A lawsuit should be started as soon as that is signed, if Pres Obama signs it. The law is so unconstitutional on so many levels. When are we going to wake up and realize that such power will be abused. By the time that it is, it will be too late for the political enemies of the right wingers who are headed for full control of our government.
Yes, we have lost 800 years of developing common law in an instant. We are back in the dark ages. History was made months ago when the US President ordered the assassination of an educated US citizen from New Mexico without due process of law. Sure, the guy may or may not have been an Al Qaeda leader. He should have been brought to justice, charges read, and served his day in court. Sure, cops kill people all the time who fight them and resist arrest. But in this case, there was to be no arrest. The order was deliberate assassination. Where does the line get drawn?
