The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals has just ruled the NDAA’s Indefinite Detention powers are totally Constitutional…at least for now.
Judge Raymond Lohier, Denny Chin and Christopher Droney have betrayed their Oath to the Constitution they swore to Uphold, Defend and Support….
On December 31st, 2011, in the dead of night, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law. On that day, the Bill of Rights was shattered in the interest of the “War on Terror.”
Yesterday, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals placed Section 1021 of the NDAA back into effect.
According to the Obama Administration, it is infringing on the Constitutional rights of our President to strike down the indefinite detention of American citizens without charge or trial.
Judge Katherine Forrest released her ruling on the NDAA today, permanently striking down sections 1021 and 1022. This was expected, and it is still welcomed. However, it is not time to celebrate.
The NDAA is an affront to America, to civil liberties and to our founding fathers. It place the US under the law of war instead of the Constitution, and has been in effect for over 7 months.
