    Indefinite Military Detention Of US Citizens To Be Signed Into Law By Obama.

    What the heck is this? Now American citizens can be held without trail indefinitely. Sounds more like a dictatorship then a democracy.

      WASHINGTON – President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law today. The statute contains a sweeping worldwide indefinite detention provision.  While President Obama issued a signing statement saying he had “serious reservations” about the provisions, the statement only applies to how his administration would use the authorities granted by the NDAA, and would not affect how the law is interpreted by subsequent administrations.  The White House had threatened to veto an earlier version of the NDAA, but reversed course shortly before Congress voted on the final bill.
