Good old McCain seems to be the culprit again.
Federal lawmakers are once again clashing over how to treat American citizens accused of terrorism, after Congress quietly stripped a provision from a defense bill that was intended to prevent indefinite detention without trial.

In November the Senate voted overwhelmingly ( to amend the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to curb indefinite detention. California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee introduced the amendment.

Some additional commentary:

Outstanding, from comments section:

No nation gets the government they want. Every nation gets the government they deserve.

Everyone's morals are defined by what we allow to happen to others. Americans remained silent when the US implemented this policy abroad, now they must take it in the (censored) at home because they were complicit by virtue of their lack of opposition to government policy.

Do you think the Neocon statists who dominate GTs political forum give a rats ass? "Good they can catch them tarrorists! cuz this is 'Merica!!!" Never mind that Obozo could deem gunowners who resist confiscation "terrorists" and send you to Guantonimo for life. Oh wait, I thought the messiah was going to close that place. :upeyes:
