    Obama signs NDAA 2013 without objecting to indefinite detention of Americans

    President Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 on Wednesday, giving his stamp of approval to a Pentagon spending bill that will keep Guantanamo Bay open and make indefinite detention for US citizens as likely as ever.

    The president inked his name to the 2013 NDAA on Wednesday evening to little fanfare, and accompanied his signature with a statement condemning a fair number of provisions contained in a bill that he nevertheless endorsed.

    The NDAA, an otherwise mundane annual bill that lays out the use of funds for the Department of Defense, has come under attack during the Obama administration for the introduction of a provision last year that allows the military to detain United States citizens indefinitely without charge or trial for mere suspicions of ties to terrorism. Under the 2012 NDAA’s Sec. 1021, Pres. Obama agreed to give the military the power to arrest and hold Americans without the writ of habeas corpus, although he promised with that year’s signing statement that his administration would not abuse that privilege.

    Im sorry, but this needs to be repeated... oft. ...esp. since the PraetorianGuardMedia prefers to ignore it.

    I understand that average Americans are being dumbed down at an amazingly alarming rate but ... is it really that difficult to read the writing on the wall?

    Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

    NDAA is the very definition of unconstitutional.
