Rand Paul Aims to Kill “Indefinite Detention” Provision of Controversial Bill


With the bill expected to be up for a vote within 48 hours, Senator Rand Paul has offered an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that will kill a provision allowing the military to detain individuals, including American citizens, without trial or due process.

The “indefinite detention” sections of the NDAA bill would turn the whole of the United States into a “battlefield” and hand the executive branch the power to have the military arrest U.S. citizens and hold them without trial.

The provision is merely an update to the “parallel legal system” had been in place under the auspices of the war on terror for over a decade, “In which terrorism suspects — U.S. citizens and noncitizens alike — may be investigated, jailed, interrogated, tried and punished without legal protections guaranteed by the ordinary system,” as the Washington Post reported in December 2002.

In attempt to kill the indefinite detention provision of the legislation, Senator Rand Paul aims to strike Section 1031 from the bill, which reads as follows.

If Big Military wants the right to terrorize the American public, Congress must obey their wishes. Why?

How many military sharpshooters are there? How many other military personnel could pass as sharpshooters if necessary? How many members of Congress are there? How many major people are there in Government if you include the Judiciary and State leaders?

Government was never meant to be in the hands of the select few like the Federal Government is today. Congress and the Judiciary were never meant to have undue power.

All the people were meant to be the military... the militia. None of the military was ever meant to be outside of the people, under the control of the President when there was not violent action against the American people taking place (9/11 was an inside job).

Which military General will take over once they do away with the government?
