More on the Constitution Killer

S1867.

Don’t be confused by anyone claiming that the indefinite detention legislation does not apply to American citizens. It does. There is an exemption for American citizens from the mandatory detention requirement (section 1032 of the bill), but no exemption for American citizens from the authorization to use the military to indefinitely detain people without charge or trial (section 1013 of the bill). So, the result is that, under the bill, the military has the power to indefinitely imprison American citizens.

Sen. Lindsey Graham put it as bluntly as it could be put on the Senate floor:

“1031, the statement of authority to detain, does apply to American citizens and it designates the world as the battlefield, including the homeland.”
