The Senate is set to vote on a billnext week that would define the whole of the United States as a “battlefield” and allow the U.S. Military to arrest American citizens in their own back yard without charge or trial. “TheSenate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—andevery future president — the power to order the military to pick up andimprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. The power isso broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and themilitary could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United Statesitself,” writes Chris Anders of theACLU Washington Legislative Office.
Under the‘worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial’ provisionof S.1867, the NationalDefense Authorization Act bill, which is set to be up for a vote on the Senate floor Monday,the legislation will “basically say in law for the first time that thehomeland is part of the battlefield,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.),who supports the bill.
The bill was drafted in secret by Senators Carl Levin(D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), before being passed in a closed-doorcommittee meeting without any kind of hearing. The language appears in sections1031 and 1032 of the NDAA bill.
“I would also point outthat these provisions raise serious questions as to who we are as a society andwhat our Constitution seeks to protect,” Colorado Senator MarkUdall said in a speech last week. One sectionof these provisions, section 1031, would be interpreted as allowing themilitary to capture and indefinitely detain American citizens on U.S.soil.
Section 1031 essentially repeals the Posse Comitatus Actof 1878 by authorizing the U.S.military to perform law enforcement functions on American soil. That aloneshould alarm my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, but there are otherproblems with these provisions that must be resolved.”
This means Americans could be declared domesticterrorists and thrown in a military brig with no recourse whatsoever. Giventhat the Department of HomelandSecurity has characterized behaviorsuch as buying gold, owning guns,using a watch or binoculars, donating to charity, using the telephone or emailto find information, using cash, and all manner of mundane behaviors aspotential indicators of domestic terrorism, such a provision would be wide opento abuse.
“American citizens andpeople picked up on American or Canadian or British streets being sent tomilitary prisons indefinitely without even being charged with a crime.
The ACLU is urging citizens to call their Senator anddemand that the Udall Amendment beadded to the bill, a change thatwould at least act as a check to prevent Americans being snatched off thestreets without some form of Congressional oversight.
A Note from the Senior Chief: Hellwe don’t even need this bill. NO AMERICAN CITIZEN SHOULDEVER, EVER, EVER, BE ARRESTED BY THE USMILITARY ON USSOIL AND DETAINED PERIOD. That is the job of localand state police. The Feds can stay the hell out of Florida too, but that is my opinion rightnow. Not until we get rid of this Communist government in theWhite House anyway !
We have been warning for over a decade that Americanswould become the target of laws supposedly aimed at terrorists and enemycombatants. Alex Jones personally documented how U.S.troops were being trained to arrest U.S. citizens inthe event of martial law during urban warfare training drills back in the90′s. Under the National Defense Authorization Act bill,no declaration of martial law is necessary since Americans would now be subjectto the same treatment as suspected insurgents in places like Afghanistan and Iraq.
THIS IS YOUR FUTURE AND LIFE! YOU MUST ACT TODAY FORSELF-PRESERVATION!
