Obama's NDAA Conspiracy vs. America by TANGERINE BOLEN (NEXT NEWS NETWORK. COM)
(Feb 26, 2013) The NDAA has been called the death of our republican form of government. That acronym refers to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, which contains a provision allowing the president to order the indefinite military detention of anyone accused of offering substantial support to al-Qaeda or "associated forces."
The measure does not define critical terms -- for instance, what groups would be considered "associated forces." And it applies to U.S. citizens, who -- under the ambiguous and expansive terms of that measure -- could be detained by the military, on U.S. soil, until what the measure calls the "end of hostilities," which in the open-ended war on terror could mean forever. According to Obama administration spokesmen, the NDAA could be used to imprison war correspondents and other journalists who cover terrorism-related issues.
