Quote:"A federal judge granted a preliminary injunction late Wednesday to block provisions of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act that would allow the military to indefinitely detain anyone it accuses of knowingly or unknowingly supporting terrorism. The Obama administration had argued, inter alia, that the plaintiffs, including whistleblower and transparency advocate Daniel Ellsberg and Icelandic Member of Parliament Birgitta Jonsdottir lacked standing, but Judge Katherine Forrest didnt buy it. Given recent statements from the administration, it seems safe to say this will be the start of a long court battle."

From the last link in post:

Quote:Former Security Officials: Outlawing Indefinite Detention for Suspects Would ‘Reward Terrorists’ Officials Argue Guaranteeing Trial 'Unconstitutional'
any change in the law that would restrict the ability of the federal government to indefinitely detain suspects without charges would amount to “rewarding terrorists” and would make terror attacks more likely. It goes on to claim that removing the law would be unconstitutional because—and get this—it would restrict the president’s ability to “fulfill his constitutional duties as commander in chief.”

So now, trials are unconstitutional?
I recall Obama saying this would not
enforced, but now they're a fightin'
this here tooth and nail, callin' it
unconstitutional to not support an act
that's unconstitutional. blink.gif
Time to put someone in charge of things
that ain't idiots.

Officials argue that guaranteeing a trial, that is a part of the constitution is 'Unconstitutional' 13.gif Times have changed, these days to have liberty there must be tyranny. It doesn't work like it used to because of the billions and billions of foreign and domestic terrorists.
Can you imagine at one time "the terrorists" had representatives in government? lmao.gif coffeetime.gif pfft.
