WILL INNOCENT AMERICANS BE ARRESTED BY THE U.S. MILITARY?
by Doretta Wildes, blogging at Doretta Wildes
(Dec. 1, 2011) — If passed without these amendments, Americans could be seized and imprisoned indefinitely by the military for thoughts or actions interpreted as “terrorism.” And this could be done on American soil. This is a blatant attempt to subvert the Constitution. Please take it seriously.
The following amendments are being proposed:
1. Senate Amendment (SA) 1126 would “clarify” Section 1031 to bar the military from detaining Americans without trial until the end of hostilities.
2. SA 1125 would limit the mandatory detention provision in Section 1032 to persons captured abroad, not in America.
Please don’t depend on Obama to veto this awful legislation. Take action yourself.
Contact your senators (Lieberman and Blumenthal in Connecticut) at 202-224-3121 and urge them to support SA 1125 & SA 1126 to the National Defense Authorization Act.
