More on NDAA indefinite detention
This article may help clarify the issues.The issue is not who will or might be detained or how the offense is defined. The issue is the government's power to detain. This power includes the power to detain/arrest U.S. Citizens on U.S. soil. How can a person defend themselves if they are never charged and tried? Although this might seem like something that is not likely to happen to a truly innocent person, that is not the issue. The government must not even be granted this power. How will this person who is wrongly detained be able to clear themselves?. The Pres. has promised never to abuse the law. Do you trust him? How much goes on that the Pres. doesn't even know about, or pretends not to know about. This is too important to take the risk. If you are arrested or detained in the U.S. by government, you have certain rights. PERIOD.
