Upset by the passage of the NDAA? Allen West sets the record straight


Many people have been very upset by the passage of the NDAA.  There has been a firestorm of activity in the blogosphere about the unconstitutionality of this bill.  Of course I had to dig and seek out the truth on this because I could never believe that Allen West would vote to detain US citizens without due process for unlimited amounts of time.  This is exactly what I was looking for.

    Section 1021 of the NDAA allows the U.S. military to indefinitely detain, without due process, any person engaged in “hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners … without trial until the end of hostilities.”Section 1022 expressly states that the military will imprison anyone who is a member of al-Qaeda or “an associated force” that acts like al-Qaeda; and anyone who planned or carried out an attack, or attempted attack, against the U.S. Section 1022 continues that detaining American citizens is not required. “UNITED STATES CITIZENS — The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.”The bottom line is the government can imprison anyone suspected of or even associated with terrorism. This power is open to wide interpretation and could certainly be abused.Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/language-of-ndaa-legal-to-imprison-americans-2
