Federal judge blocks indefinite detention law

A New York federal judge shot down part of a controversial anti-terror law Wednesday that journalists and scholars worry could see them locked up indefinitely for speaking their minds.

Judge Katherine Forrest issued a ruling that permanently blocked a section of the National Defense Authorization Act signed by President Barack Obama at the end of last year authorizing the detention of US citizens accused of supporting terror groups.

Yes, Judge Forrest blocked the law - - but she didn't block the actual detention of U.S. citizens.  The Govt. will continue to pickup and hold those it deems necessary as it chooses, law or no law, judicial ruling for or against them. 

We are no longer a nation of laws but rather a nation of power.
