The military can arrest ________ citizens, detain them indefinitely, torture and interrogate them without charge or trial.
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) was recently passed by both houses of Congress and signed into law by President Obama. Under NDAA the military can now arrest American citizens, detain them indefinitely, torture and interrogate them without charge or trial. In essence, this Act implemented martial law in the United States. It also nullifies the Magna Carta of 1215, Bill of Rights and Posse Comitatus, which prohibited the military policing civilians inside the U.S. since 1878. (Source)
Here are a few comments about the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) from the Human Rights Watch organization:
The Human Rights Watch also has a form to sign if you’re opposed to NDAA:
“For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury . . . “–The Declaration of Independence, 1776.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people . . .” — The Declaration of Independence, 1776.
