Feds Using NDAA To Silence Journalists Critical Of Government

E-mail Print PDF

A coalition of prominent journalist known for being critical of the United States in the War on Terror have joined forces to file a lawsuit against Barack Obama and Leon Panetta to challenge the National Defense Authorization act.

The NDAA, also known as the Homeland Battlefield Bill, has legalized a wide variety of totalitarian measures against US citizens by declaring the entire world, including the United States, a battleground in the war against terrorism and is a clear and present danger to the US Constitution.

As I reported before the bill was passed into law:

In accordance with the NDAA, we have seen the US government argue that it can now impose military detention on US citizens.

That means US citizens can be arrested and thrown in jail indefinitely without a right to a trial or even a lawyer.

The US government has also asserted they can ship US citizens they detain to secret overseas prisons where they can be tortured.

The government has even asserted NDAA they are now allowed to preemptively assassinate US citizens they decide t add to a top-secret kill list with no judicial oversight.
