Obama Administration Writes Rights Out of New Indefinite Detention Law

American Scofflaw
This does not surprise me in the least.
By signing the NDAA last New Year's Eve President Obama put a legal mechanism in place whereby any President could have the US military arrest and put any American citizen and place them in indefinite detention without due process.
And although he issued a signing statement indicating that he personally would not do this as President, if there is any alleged "national emergency", such a signing statement would go right out the window.
