UPDATE: Latest on NDAA detention case

The indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act has spurred much opposition.  The Plaintiff's have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene--at least temporarily.   Hopefully, the U.S. Supreme Court will eventually rule on the merits of this statute.  Although the statute is vague, it is potentially dangerous.  Further, it could be very difficult to determine if, when and who is detained.  Anyone who thought Pres. Obama would be a strong supporter of civil rights has been mistaken. Thanks to Bennett Jones for the link

UPDATE:  Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg refused to block enforement of the controversal NDAA provisions. The law will remain in effect.  This was a long shot and, as most expected, the government won and the plaintiffs lost.
