Glenn Greenwald debunks three myths:
- Myth #1: This bill does not codify indefinite detention
- Myth #2: The bill does not expand the scope of the War on Terror as defined by the 2001 AUMF
- Myth #3: U.S. citizens are exempted from this new bill
Go. Read. Your future freedom from indefinite detention without charge or trial may depend on it. Obama threatens to outdo himself yet again in pursuit of the worst civil liberties record in the history of the American presidency. Yes, the very worst. To date, one could argue, FDR’s internment of Japanese Americans was comparable in nature, but it was for a limited time. Obama’s detentions could well be for life. You tell me that is not worse? You must be outta your friggin’ mind!
