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.
Kal Penn, Associate Director at White House Office of Public Engagement, was recently asked questions by Luke Rudowski of We Are Change on several of Obama’s Policies.
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.
Our Congress is finally standing up against the President of the United States, and acting out it’s actions as a coequal branch to the Executive Branch.
