Okay, so in the National Defense Authorization Act there is a section in there that states U.S. citizens can be detained by the military for an indefinite amount of time just upon the premise of suspicion of terrorist-like activities. The writ of habeas corpus does not protect you either, which is unconstitutional (go figure). It also gives the military and law enforcement agencies more power as far as dealing with civilians (am I correct here? Correct me if I'm wrong, please). I'm thinking that has something to do with marshal law.
Apparently the bill is needed for defense funding and other military issues (I wonder what issues those might be? Civilian issues?) I guess it also approves the purchases of defense vehicles and weapon systems. This seems a bit counter-intuitive to me. If Obama is cutting back on military spending as well as reducing our military in size, then why would the bill allow for the purchase of the latter? Maybe those items are not going to be used for overseas military affairs...if you get my drift? I just tend to believe those things are being purchased for use HERE, potentially against us.
If anyone could help shed some light on this, I'd appreciate it.
