NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act, section 1021 and 1022)allows the military to hold anyone accused of having “substantially supported” al-Qaeda, the Taliban or “associated forces” until “the end of hostilities” AND indefinitely imprison anyone who commits a “belligerent act” against the United States,
Most of the Citizens out there read the above and said to themselves, “Well i’m not al-Qaeda or the Taliban and I am certainly not going to commit a belligerent act against the United States like them. What is the problem? People who would do that shouldn’t be American citizens.” Most of us, upon reading the clauses contained in section 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA, are associating Belligerent Act with al-Quaeda and the Taliban’s known examples of ‘belligerent acts’.
I think this wording, sticking the two sentences together like that, was done so you the Citizen, would think the two sentences are directly linked. KNOW, on your peril, that the two sentences are not connected. The word, ‘AND’ proves that. It is a grammatical fact.
Indefinitely imprisoning anyone who commits a belligerent act against the United States is it’s own idea and could be it’s own sentence. Therefore, when reading the sentence, you must realize we cannot imply belligerent acts are the same belligerent acts carried out by the Taliban and al-Quaeda. These so called ‘belligerent acts’ mentioned in the NDAA, HAVE NOT BEEN DEFINED! Do any of you see the door we have opened? Not only hasn’t belligerent acts been defined, the process of how those will be defined hasn’t even been decided. But it’s now legal to detain us based on belligerent acts.
This means until it is defined we are pretty much living in a military/police state who can indefinitely detain us without ever revealing why we are being detained. They do not have to define belligerent acts because they never have to reveal they have taken you. They don’t have to charge you with anything, there will be no grand jury to witness it, no reporters, or judges to agree you committed a belligerent act, you will just be gone. No force in the land can question them on this now.
Our forefathers did not want this. Obama is a lying dog for saying this is for the safety of Americans. The Courts should know better and the American people should God damn well know better. This country was built to give the common people a voice right along side the super powerful elite. This country was set up to protect the common people from the forces of the elite, including THE MILITARY.
What have we become? Seriously, we have taken the voice from the common people and handed it to our rich Lords and Ladies(Citizens United). We have taken the protections given to us by our Forefathers and squandered them in the name of FEAR! We are no longer, O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave! It has become land of the detained and the home of the AFRAID.
You, American citizens are failing as a whole to protect yourselves from the very thing this country was designed to protect you from, A tyrannical government. You are very very Un-American if you support this in the least, you are part of the very destruction of America. You may as well have flown the Jets into the World Trade Centers, Because there is no greater ‘belligerent act’ to the United States of America than what has taken place this past year with Citizen’s United and the Indefinite Detention section of the NDAA.
p.s. Romney has done or said nothing about this, he is as culpable as Obama or frankly, as any of us.
