The 2014 National Defense Authorization Act passed the Senate quietly on Friday, December 20th, 2013, while the mainstream media was busy reporting on Duck Dynasty and the contrived social controversy over the holidays. This familiar deceptive tactic was also used with the 2012 NDAA, when President Obama signed the legislation into law on New Years eve, 2011.
This action codified indefinite military detention into law without charge or trial for the first time in United States history. The NDAA’s extremely dangerous detention provisions give authorization to the president, and all future presidents, to capture, detain, and indefinitely imprison anyone from anywhere in the world, and far from any battlefield, without charge or due process of law. Additionally, the scope of the NDAA’s detention authority violates applicable international law due to the fact that it is not limited to people captured in the context of actual armed conflict as required by laws of war.
Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and author Nick Kristof doesn’t know enough to comment about the Obama Administrations appeal of U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest’s permanent block on section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which may allow for indefinite detainment of American citizens.
