Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act essentially codifies into law the same unconstitutional claim of presidential authority under the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force to indefinitely detain American citizens without access to legal representation or due process of law. Section 1021 authorizes the Military to be utilized as a Police Force on U.S. soil; apprehending “terror suspects,” including American Citizens and whisking them off to an unknown location and held indefinitly. American Citizens would no longer have a right to an attorney or due process in a court of law.
Is that what America has become? Can we still call her the Land of the Free? We must speak out against the illegal destruction of our Constitution. It may not mean anything to you but It means everything to me. Many men and women have died in defense of it. Please do not let their deaths go in vain.
