(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.

Thank you.

  1. About using U.S. military forces against U.S. citizens on U.S. soil:

    Until now, the law has been that habeas corpus and posse comitatus
    CAN be suspended, but only with the approval of Congress on a case-
    by-case basis. Section 1031 would have established that approval
    of Congress in advance, making it SOP for all cases.

    The offending Section 1031 is no longer in the National Defense
    Authorization Act for FY2012, S.1867. (But Sections 1032(a)(2),
    1032(a)(3), and 1036(a) still refer to Sec. 1031.) Sen. Udall’s amendment
    #1107 was defeated, but the subsequent removal of Sec. 1031
    from the NDAA for FY2012 in effect carried out amendment #1107.


  2. The real deal is, the constitution is the supreme law of the land, any elected official that violates it, automatically, no longer represents the US government. And this “amendment” whatever will be null and void on it’s face, and unenforceable. To enforce this bill is to declare war on the states. Actually, the authors of this bill need a recall election to give them something to do, besides commit treason.
