    American citizens can now be imprisoned without due process.

    On New Year's Eve, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012.

    But he said he had concerns about it so that makes it oki doki. And then he "assured" the listener that he would never use it for citizens.

    I really am not to bothered by the typical liberal agenda of this president. Those things come and go. Ordering the execution of a US citizen without a trial and indefinite detention are serious dangers. The 4th-5th amendments are already nullified by this president and the 6th may not be too far behind.

    True, but now it appears that it doesn't even require a hint of evidence or even real probable cause to bury anyone of us in a dungeon and that without recourse indefinitely on a "suspicion".

    Perhaps it would be better to be shot.

    What's next? an executive order to disregard the 2 term limit of the presidency?

    [SIZE=+0]The problem with this kind of thing is that although this president will get the blame for it, and he should, every president and congress that follows will support it without repealing what has happened.
    Once freedoms are surrendered by the people, the government then finds it easy to strip away others. In truth George Bush, regretfully I voted for him, our last president opened the door wide for this president to do what he is doing. The only hope is someone like Ron Paul, although I am not necessarily indorsing him as I think our destruction would come from another direction. Either way I honestly believe we are done as the nation of the free.

    This law codifies what was already the situation by Supreme Court decision in WWII.

    Just for the record could you document that codification and the Supreme Court decision?

    Do you mean the imprisonment of Japanese American citizens?

    I was wondering how many of our freedom-loving, small-government Republicans voted for this bill?
