The ACLU inquired about “targeted killings” and “the putative legal basis for carrying out targeted killings; any restrictions on those who may be targeted; any civilian casualties; any geographic limits on the program; the number of targeted killings that the agency has carried out.”
Very few real issues have been covered in the Presidential Debates. Now, President Obama claims he wants to debate civil liberties with Mitt Romney.
Here’s a few ideas on what they should cover…
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.
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.
