    The NDAA has a provision for indefinite detention of citizens; see if the following sounds familiar:

    Legislation on Police Powers of Detention


    Did I surprise anyone?

    Honestly, my only surprise was that the link was not to a more local story.

    Yep. But what's the difference between this and what the NDAA authorizes?

    The difference is our leaders promise not to use their new powers on us. Unless they have to in order to "keep us safe".

    Is the NDAA in violation of the 4th Amendment?
