U.S. Citizens Face Indefinite Military D

U.S. Citizens Face Indefinite Military Detention – Defense Bill For Vote Before Senate – Four provisions within this 680 page bill. — specifically the one you mentioned about creating a system of indefinite military detention within the United States by statute. This would be the first time since the McCarthy era that the United States Congress has tried to do this. – So we’re talking about indefinite military detention of U.S. citizens, of lawful U.S. residents as well as of people abroad – And it could be for things you’ve done here in this country. If you communicate with Al Qaeda, you’re suspected of being even a supporter of Al Qaeda in some way or of Al Qaeda’s associated forces. And the U.S. gets to decide who they think is associated with Al Qaeda, and that list grows longer almost every day.- And this is military custody without trial – And one other point, another very controversial provision in the bill and what the administration has particularly objected to, is the mandatory military custody provision which would say anyone suspected of terrorism in any way connected to Al Qaeda would have to be put into military custody. http://www.democracynow.org/2011/11/29/battlefield_america_us_citizens_face_indefinite
