The Bill: To authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2012 for military activities of the Department of Defense, for military construction, and for defense activities of the Department of Energy, to prescribe military personnel strengths for such fiscal year, and for other purposes.
Contained within this new law unchanged, is Section 1031: which authorizes the military to go literally anywhere in the world to imprison civilians — even American citizens in the United States itself — without charge or trial, based on suspicion alone.
It now goes to Obama for his Heinous’ signature into law.
Don’t look for a veto. Obama and his regime has played this very well, making statements that they ‘oppose’ the provisions for detention of American citizens, yet Obama’s own man Carl Levin (D) spilled the beans that it was Obama himself who demanded they REMOVE the language that would exempt American citizens from the provision of indefinite detainment?
The ability to make anyone disappear, without charge or trial – is now, with his signature – “legal”. Anyone that the ‘executive’ declares an ‘enemy’ or ‘terrorist’ is subject to being arrested indefinitely without charge or trial. That means Obama, on his own authority can declare you an enemy – and make you disappear, all perfectly legal. Let’s also not forget who this regime has already deemed to be a domestic terrorist, and one wonders what the Ruling Class idiots in D.C. are smoking, unless it’s our flesh they crave.
In addition, a national security waiver allows the executive branch to move Jihad terror suspects from military tribunals to civilian courts was placed in the president’s hands rather than the Defense secretary’s, a change Carl Levin said Obama had asked for. So Obama himself can decide what American citizen is an enemy he is able to make disappear, and at the same time, Obama can decide that Jihadist’s caught on the battlefield can be tried in civilian courts with the rights American citizens used to have.
Get the picture of what is going on now?
All this under the guise of funding the military for fiscal year 2012.
Then again, Harry Reid shoves Cowboy Poetry festivals into budget bills. Pretty much means they can now shove whatever they want into anything they pass since they now have the power to make anyone they want disappear into military custody.
